MainTAINING GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE TRAINING

Description:

This training is intended for supervisors and field staff responsible for maintaining green stormwater infrastructure projects.  Without appropriate operation and maintenance activities GSI projects will not continue to function properly and yield expected water quality and environmental benefits, meet legal standards, and protect the communities’ financial investment.  In this training with the Providence Stormwater Innovation Center, we will give an overview of GSI function and maintenance issues, how design and construction decisions affect future maintenance, lessons learned from the field and the importance of routine inspections and tracking changes over time.
