With the expanding regulatory push to decrease stormwater volume and improve stormwater quality, increasing attention is being given to the use of green infrastructure stormwater management techniques. While growing popular, these techniques are often misapplied, improperly designed or inadequately maintained. This new and innovative one-day class will explore those techniques being implemented on an increasingly frequent basis throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. The focus of this program deals with the proper selection, design, implementation and maintenance of green infrastructure techniques commonly used in urban and suburban settings. Multiple site examples will be provided.
Additionally, with the interest of DEP in sustainable remediation, the impacts of capping contaminated sites may be mitigated by the innovative approaches discussed in this course. Therefore, LSRPs are encouraged to attend this program as they should be aware of the alternatives to “hard caps” in reducing stormwater runoff.
