Getting the Green Light for Green Infrastructure: Considerations and Resources for Success
Wednesday, September 15th at 2pm CT – View the Recording

Communities are increasing turning to green infrastructure to reach stormwater management goals. With green infrastructure, we see beautiful gardens and walkways, but perhaps more important are the things we can’t see. Communities must consider financing, ordinances, state and federal regulatory requirements, and public input in their decision making and planning processes.

This edition of The Current featured a deep dive into resources that can help communities do green infrastructure right.

Featured Speakers:
  • Paula Conolly, Director, Green Infrastructure Leadership Exchange: “The Green Infrastructure Leadership Exchange: Challenges and Success Stories”
  • Harry Zhang, Program Director, The Water Research Foundation: “Advancing Green Infrastructure Practices through CLASIC Life Cycle Cost Tool and Co-Benefit Analysis”
  • John Watson, Civil Engineer, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago: “Greening Chicagoland for Reduced Flooding”
