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 the 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 webinar, 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.
