This report presents the results of a year-long analysis of the Kromma Kill Watershed (New York, U.S.). The study incorporated GIS analyses, storwmater modeling efforts, and field assessments. The results indicate that green infrastructure at the watershed-scale effectively reduces flood peaks and volumes; additionally, it suggests that drainage network structures and subwatershed slope should be considered in addition to percent impervious cover when evaluating watersheds like the Kromma Kill.
