Spring rain is generally very welcome as it gets the growing season started. In recent years, we have been experiencing an increase in the number of short intense rain events, called Cloudbursts, due to climate change. This occurs because warmer air can hold more water. Over the years many marshes, forests, and other green spaces have been paved over and can no longer help with the absorption of this excess water. New York City’s storm water pipes were designed largely based on historic precipitation and runoff rates, which are not sufficient for our more frequent intense storms and increase in paved surfaces. Important projects for our future are starting to take hold, restoring our wetlands and reinvigorating greenspaces.
