FRI-D05 - Investing Water during a Drought: Sustainable Green Infrastructure for Dry Climates

Friday, October 20
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

1.5 PDH, LA CES/HSW, AIA/HSW, AICP, FL, NY/HSW

Addressing demands for environmental justice usually requires "greening" of our cities. Desert cities face the contradiction of providing green infrastructure without increasing water consumption. This requires innovation and reconsideration of how we define, collect, clean, and store water, and where and how it is used.

Learning Objectives:

Lee-Anne Milburn

Professor
California State Polytechnic University--Pomona

Professor of Landscape Architecture at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Dr. Milburn researches issues related to sustainability, water quality and quantity, active and alternate transportation, human capacity through outdoor physical activity, and physical design’s impact on the urban heat island (and related problems). Her other primary area of research is specific to landscape architecture: the research culture of landscape architecture, relationship between research and design, and distributing and communicating research to the design professions. Dr. Milburn has a B.F.A., and M.L.A. and a Ph.D. in Rural Studies-Environmental Design and Rural Development.

Deborah Deets

Landscape Architect, QSP/QSD
Watershed Protection Division, LA Sanitation

Deborah's interests as a landscape architect are dedicated to water. She authored one of seven of the nations' first stormwater standard plans using landscape architecture as the functional bridge between nature and city infrastructure. She has overseen a seven-year collaborative academic project for developing sustainable landscape BMP's for Los Angeles and organized major events inviting Los Angeles' stormwater professionals to re-envision their "tributaries". Seeking technology and funding partnerships are next steps in providing targeted sustainable ecosystem restorations and an historic vision by bridging developers and funding with equitable landscapes that self-regulate along LA River mainstem and regional arterial stormwater corridors.
