The mission of RAINmgt is to achieve sustainable and cost effective health and environmental outcomes by re-imagining aging coastal urban infrastructure systems for nutrient recovery and management contributing to sustainable and healthy communities. The overall goal is to develop the science behind new technology and management innovations and a deep understanding of the integrated system while demonstrating and assessing these innovations to provide new knowledge for students, community members, and other stakeholders. Systems approaches allow us to evaluate and optimize an integrated system of technologies and management strategies.
