Abstract
Although some infrastructures were built for environmental purposes, there is a growing concern about their actual environmental impacts. In the context of hydrologic risk management, Best Management Practices (BMPs) are compensatory techniques in urban drainage based on physical processes for the temporary storage or infiltration of stormwater. The environmental burdens taking place in the different life-cycle stages of a service, i.e., raw materials extraction, construction, transportation, us...
