Abstract: As part of a detailed flood control project, the City of Meriden, Connecticut, unearthed a hidden stretch of Harbor Brook, the waterway that passes through its downtown. Combining flood control and economic revitalization, the project included the creation of Meriden Green, a new urban park that doubles as a flood storage facility.
