Sustainable Solutions to Stormwater Management: Green Infrastructure Design, Construction & Maintenance
October 22 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Using a series of representative projects, we will take a case-study approach to evaluating the design and construction of GI systems. In addition to the design and construction methods, we will explore how maintenance can extend the life of these systems and keep them performing for years to come. In this webinar, participants will learn more about the concepts of LID and GI, rationale for their use, and considerations for design, construction, and maintenance.
The program will be useful for engineers, planners, environmental consultants, landscape architects, water quality educators, extension agents, elected officials, state and municipal officials and anyone else with an interest in learning more about managing and improving stormwater management.
At the local level, green infrastructure practices include rain gardens, bioswales, permeable pavers, green roofs, green walls and rainwater harvesting systems. At the largest scale, the connection, preservation, integration and restoration of built and natural landscapes such as parks and trails, and forests, floodplains and wetlands are beneficial components of green infrastructure.
