Green Infrastructure Workshop

Harvesting the Rain:
Green Infrastructure for a Healthier Rahway Watershed

Thursday, January 31, 2013
7:00pm - 9:30pm
Throughout New Jersey—and within the Rahway River watershed—we have created vast areas of impervious surfaces. These impervious surfaces carry increasing amounts of stormwater to the Rahway, its tributaries and the New York/New Jersey Harbor Estuary. One result is more frequent and severe flood events, even during relatively small storms. Increased runoff also causes habitat degradation, reduced water quality, higher discharge temperatures, stream and bank erosion and aesthetic degradation.

Green infrastructure is a suite of cost-effective design techniques that mimic the functions of natural systems to control stormwater. When applied to new or existing developed areas, they can markedly improve water quality, reduce runoff volume, reduce peak flow and improve the aesthetic and recreational assets of your community.

In the workshop you will:
•learn about green infrastructure techniques and their application in New Jersey;
•hear practical case studies of
environmental commission projects.

Registration:

ANJEC Members $10
Non-Members $15
If your commission is on the ANJEC Workshop Plan there is no charge to attend.
