Reminder - Green Infrastructure Webcast Tuesday May 12th!

Registration is now open for the next Green Infrastructure webcast on May 12th, from 1 to 3pm EDT. This webcast will feature two new topics in the green infrastructure webcast series-site planning and design considerations, and a presentation on the Water Environment Research Federation's (WERF) cost tool. Register at: www.epa.gov/npdes/greeninfrastructure/training

The design and construction presentation, led by Dan Christian from Tetra Tech, Inc., will discuss important considerations for green infrastructure design and construction including engineering to mimic natural functions. The presentation will also discuss design issues such as under drains, overflows, liners, soils and how these and other standard storm water engineering approaches are applied differently with green infrastructure approaches. The WERF cost tool discussion will be led by Lisa Hair, EPA, and Dr. Christine Pomeroy and Dasch Houdeshel, University of Utah.

WERF has developed a suite of cost tools to address vegetative roofs, rainwater catchment systems, and bioretention facilities. The speakers will discuss how these tools provide a detailed framework to facilitate cost estimation for capital costs, operation and maintenance costs, and life-cycle net present value. The tools can serve as a format for cost reporting for past, current and future projects, and also provide users with planning-level cost estimates.
