LEARNING OBJECTIVE // Green infrastructure and stormwater management has driven its way to the forefront of sustainable development within the urban context. Green infrastructure has risen from a notion of subtle environmentalism to a tangible solution for volume stormwater mitigation. Dynamic, unstatic and evolving, the sheer diversity of best management practices available to architects, landscape architects, general contractors, and developers has made green infrastructure a viable alternative to gray infrastructure. Through policy, incentives and performance products, we have entered into a new age of green infrastructure to supply the ever-increasing demands of urban stormwater management.<Designers and specifiers will learn about the changes and challenges facing past, present, and future implementations for green infrastructure to manage and/or mitigate stormwater effectively.<Designers and speficiers will learn about the numerous incentives available that are driving sustainable development nationwaide by relieving the burden of expenditure from potential clients while also maintaing design intent.<Attendees will become aware of how various echelons of stormwater policy are driving green infrastructure performance and design.1 CES Learning Unit // FREE FOR MEMBERS // LUNCH INCLUDED
