Managing stormwater runoff and the resulting water quality issues is an ongoing challenge for urban communities. While gray infrastructure has been the traditional solution, more and more communities are instead (or in parallel) implementing green infrastructure (e.g., green roofs, bioswales, etc.) to manage their rainwater where it falls. So, what green infrastructure technologies and approaches are out there? What's best for your site? And how can you implement these cost-effectively?
Join Jeffrey Bruce for the second session in our Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series exploring green infrastructure approaches and solutions (e.g., rain gardens, bioswales, green roofs, constructed wetlands, etc.); key elements and design considerations; implementation best practices; results and benefits; and how you can cost-effectively integrate green infrastructure at your site.
In this webcast, Bruce will begin with the fundamentals of green infrastructure – what it is (and isn't), how it works, and green infrastructure's proven benefits. We'll then take a whirlwind tour of the many green infrastructure approaches, solutions, and real-world applications (including: rain gardens, urban forests, bioswales, constructed wetlands, green roofs, green walls, permeable paving, water harvesting, etc.), and identify for each the key elements, applications, design considerations, and implementation best practices. Additionally, we'll also take a look at the environmental (e.g., air quality, flood control, etc.) and cost-saving benefits for each green infrastructure solution, and how you can maximize these. And finally, we'll outline how you can assess and select the best green infrastructure solutions for your site and integrate them effectively at your site.
At the end of this session, attendees will walk away with a robust understanding of the different green infrastructure solutions and how you can integrate these into your stormwater management plan.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- Learn the concepts and issues related to green infrastructure, drawing from design evaluation, ecological restoration, and ecosystem services valuation.
- Learn the current green infrastructure approaches, methods, and practices.
- Learn the basic design considerations for selection of green infrastructure solutions.
- Learn the green infrastructure implementation best practices and results.
- Understand the importance of an interdisciplinary approach for integrating green infrastructure into urban environments.
Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series
This Green Infrastructure – Where, When, and How to Incorporate It webinar is the second session in our 5-session Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series.Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Series at a discounted rate. If you are interested in purchasing the full Master Class Series, you can find information and the registration link here.
Train your whole team without the hassle of travel, and at a discounted rate! For a limited time you may register your first attendee and location for $79 and each additional attendees at $39 for the single session, or register for the full series for $319* for the first attendee and location and $199* for each additional attendee. We'll provide your group administrator a single logon to access all lectures to broadcast to your group, and each attendee who attends will receive a certificate toward the CEUs / PDHs completed. If you are interested in group pricing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time.
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
