Exciting new opportunities for green stormwater management in parks are taking shape in urban communities across the nation. Public parks offer ideal locations for green infrastructure approaches to stormwater management and have the added benefit of providing sites that engage the public and empower communities to become involved in the design, installation, and maintenance of green infrastructure projects. Presenters include representatives from municipal stormwater management agencies and urban park systems who will discuss their experiences with implementing green infrastructure stormwater management projects in parks. Content will include a preview of the final draft of EPA’s new technical publication, “Green Infrastructure in Parks: A Guide to Collaboration, Funding, and Community Engagement.”
This webinar will be of interest to parks and water utility administrators, landscape architects, representatives of community organizations, and anyone interested in building a new collaborative approach to green infrastructure projects that go beyond the functional benefits of capturing and treating stormwater to engaging and empowering communities for the benefit of all.
