Wednesday, February 14
1:00 PM - 1:20 PM

PDH: .5

Location: 103A

Level of Presentation: Intermediate

This session will share innovative practices and new technologies in planning, designing and managing green infrastructure projects and MS4 management that were discovered during the 2017 U. S. Domestic Scan "Leading Landscape Design Practices for Cost Effective Roadside Water Management". This is the first domestic scan of this type to occur in the United States. The purpose of sharing this information is to allow attendees to advance their knowledge and implementation of green infrastructure projects and how it differs from typical storm water management solutions. Green infrastructure can enhance erosion control process that healthy watersheds require. Green Infrastructure (GI) defined for this presentation includes roadside storm/water management, low impact development, hydromodification, or watershed actions that conserves water, buffers climate change impacts, improves water quality, water supply, public heath, restore and protect rivers, creeks and streams as components of transportation development projects and operations.
