Increasing Downtown Livability Through Sustainable Water Management Practices

| Hilton Baltimore, Holiday 3 | Posted: Tuesday, 2:00-3:15 p.m.

Our communities need clean water for drinking and recreation. Green infrastructure can improve stormwater management and water efficiency while meeting important revitalization goals. Policy and projects are at the core of the solution, and you can get there through small, incremental steps instead of jumping right into costly projects. You’ll learn to engage your communities in green infrastructure planning, practice, and policy; promote sustainable water management; visualize sustainable practices; and integrate sustainability within economic development planning. CM | 1.25
