January 29 – Green Infrastructure and Flood Resiliency-Land Use Management as an Adaptation Strategy in the Built Environment

by Arturo Herrera on October 26, 2014

Moderator: Cynthia Veit, Environmental Scientist, U.S. EPA

Presenter: Dr. Rob Roseen, Associate at Geosyntec Consultants in Portsmouth, NH

This webinar addresses assessment, planning, and adaptation to not only better prepare for the next emergency, but to sustainably manage flooding and storm water to maintain human health and a vibrant local economy. With excellent case studies, viewers learn about the latest innovative approaches to understand the effects of inland flooding and apply low-impact development (LID), site design, and smartgrowth practices at different scales of implementation. This webinar references pioneering hydrology-based, sub-watershed approaches that have shown mitigation potential not only for storm water and flooding, but to the loss and degradation in water quality.

This webinar is part of the series, Weathering Change: Local Solutions for Strong Communities, presented by Antioch University New England, in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
