About the Event
THIS IS A TWO DAY EVENT - ONE DAY VIRTUAL - ONE DAY IN PERSON
This is an opportunity for municipal staff and officials, water quality professionals, land use planners, civil and environmental engineers, landscape architects, construction contractors and interested citizens to learn about stormwater management and related topics from experts in the field, and from one another.
This year we are adding an exciting afternoon training program on green infrastructure on a variety of topics including permeable paver systems, vegetating steep slopes, biofiltration, and more. This will be a fantastic networking opportunity to see new and innovative products and services being used in the construction and maintenance of green stormwater infrastructure across Rhode Island and the industry.
The Stormwater and Green Infrastructure EXPO will be virtual event this year on October 26th from 1:00-2:30pm. The following day, October 27th, there will be an in-person outdoor field training in partnership with EJ Prescott from 1:00 pm -5:00pm. Attendees will meet in front of the Roger Williams Park Casino and then spread out and rotate between multiple presentation "pods" located near various green infrastructure BMPs. There will also be an option for a green infrastructure tour led by Wood Environmental.
