||Raising the Bar: Green Stormwater Infrastructure Planning and Design Workshop - 2014
||Please join us for a two-day intensive workshop focused on
the use of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) systems and
practices to achieve stormwater management goals.
Stormwater runoff, caused by precipitation running off
impervious surfaces and developed lands, is a leading cause of
surface water pollution. Managing the quality and quantity of
this runoff is of utmost importance for the health of our
communities and the protection of natural resources.
The workshop will include an overview of why and how the
national stormwater world is shifting to place more focus on
volume reduction, small-scale practices close to the source of
runoff, and green practices that utilize soils, vegetation, and
natural processes to reduce the volume of and remove
pollutants from stormwater. Presentations on green
stormwater design practices and principles will be included, as
well as a hands-on site design charette using real-world site
plans from Vermont. This charette will give participants
experience with applying green practices to sites that utilized
more traditional approaches, but where there were missed
opportunities to apply green practices. The workshop will also
include a session on implementation strategies and challenges
Registration includes continental breakfast and lunch.
Registration deadline is April 14, 2014. Space is limited to 125
so sign up today!
