Green Infrastructure and Ecosystem Services: A New Way to Look at Stormwater

A workshop for development professionals by Bill Hunt, Ph.D.

Monday, April 4, noon-1 p.m.
Forsyth County Extension Service, Auditorium C, 1450 Fairchild Road, Winston-Salem.

While the reasons for installing stormwater controls are understood to be for controlling runoff (floods and water quality), there are many many other benefits that stormwater controls provide, including air quality, carbon sequestration, climate resiliency, and biodiversity. By considering the full suite of benefits (called ecosystem services) provided by stormwater management controls, a more holistic assessment of stormwater is possible. Attendees will earn one hour of professional education credit.
