Green Infrastructure: The Role of Irrigation in Stormwater Management
Thursday, Jan. 30, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST
 

We’re kicking off the new year by adding brand new webinars to our Smart Irrigation Month: Bringing Water to Life series, where we bring together the nation’s leading water-use experts to discuss current and future challenges and opportunities facing turf/landscape and agricultural irrigation.

Join us Thursday, Jan. 30, for the first webinar in our turf/landscape track: Green Infrastructure: the Role of Irrigation in Stormwater Management. Green infrastructure is growing in communities throughout the United States as a sustainable way to manage stormwater while having a positive impact on the ecosystem. However, when using plant material to manage stormwater, what is the role of irrigation? Is it part of the problem or part of the solution? Our panel of experts will address these questions and more during this webinar.

Featured Speakers:
Paul W. Lander, PhD, ASLA, LEED AP
Paul has worked in the fields of water, energy and land conservation for over 30 years, including 16 years directing the City of Boulder’s Water Conservation Office. His teaching includes courses in Western U.S. Water, World Water and Landscape Sustainability at the University of Colorado-Boulder and through professional webinars. He is active professionally, having recently chaired committees of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Alliance for Water Efficiency and the American Water Works Association.
