Together North Jersey and Jersey Water Works are co-hosting a 1/2 day workshop on Green Infrastructure and Transportation.
THE WORKSHOP: Incorporating green infrastructure into transportation projects is a cost-effective, resilient approach to managing stormwater. It also has significant community benefits, such as improving water quality, sequestering carbon, reducing heat island effects and improving the livability of streets, to name a few. But installing and maintaining green infrastructure is not without its challenges. Learn how key challenges have been addressed - and barriers have been overcome- in real projects throughout the NJTPA and broader region. And come prepared with your questions for the moderated panel discussion!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This workshop will be of interest to engineers, planners*, elected officials, planning board members, public works directors, and other local and regional officials interested in investing in green infrastructure within their transportation network.
