Biomimetic Land Ocean Treatment System (B.L.O.T.S.)
As sea levels rise, coastal regions and cities are experiencing more and more flooding. It is estimated that by 2100, sea levels could rise by a foot. B.L.O.T.S. looked to numerous organisms for water management inspiration to find an adaptable and resilient way to deal with infrastructure being inundated with water. The B.L.O.T.S. system absorbs, redirects, filters, and stores flood water. The system is adaptable to any situation, whether it be a flooded street, playground, or building, and can be utilized by anyone.
