This webinar is part of a 2015 webcast series by the U.S. EPA’s Green Infrastructure Program. This series is generally geared towards public officials and practitioners just beginning to implement green infrastructure, as well as those looking to enhance established programs. Leading academics and professionals from around the country will cover a range of emerging topics and applications, from implementing green infrastructure in arid climates to winter operations and maintenance.
Green Infrastructure for Arid Communities will showcase how green infrastructure practices and the many associated benefits can be effective in not only wetter climates, but also for those communities in arid and semi-arid regions around the nation that have different precipitation patterns and water demand challenges.
