Reminder - Green Infrastructure Webcast on Green Streets and Operation & Maintenance: Tuesday, July 28, 2009, 1:00 - 3:00pm Eastern Reminder -

Green Highways and Green Streets are increasingly becoming critical elements of community strategies to create a sustainable infrastructure for the 21st Century. The integration of green technologies into street right-of-ways is allowing communities to develop innovative approaches for stormwater retrofits of urban areas that incorporate many of the benefits of Green Infrastructure, including urban heat island reduction, job creation, and energy savings. The first half of this webcast will present case studies, state-of-the-art research, green transportation industry resources, and successful partnerships for implementation, such as the Green Highways Partnership.

Even the best designed stormwater practice can fail if not properly maintained. The second half of this webcast will include a discussion of Seattle Public Utilities, Green Stormwater Infrastructure Program and Natural Drainage Systems maintenance practices. Seattle Public Utilities has developed a Natural Drainage Systems Maintenance Manual which addresses issues such as vegetation, system functionality, hardscape, infiltration failure, and safety. This webcast will also include numerous lessons learned from Seattle's experience, and examples of O&M manuals developed for specific projects.

This EPA webcast will be held June 28, 2009 from 1:00 - 3:00pm eastern time. To sign up for this free webcast, go to
