Runoff from storm water continues to be a major cause of water pollution in urban as well as suburban environments. It carries trash, bacteria, heavy metals, and other pollutants through storm sewers into local waterways. Heavy rainstorms can cause flooding that damages property and infrastructure. Green infrastructure elements can be woven into communities at multiple scales, capturing and diverting rainwater to prevent harmful runoff while also beautifying the community. This session will include case studies in both urban and suburban settings.

Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will gain a better understanding of the benefits of green storm water infrastructure.
  • Attendees will more clearly understand how to incorporate green infrastructure elements into their communities.
  • Attendees will learn about green infrastructure best practices, common missteps, and lessons learned.
