Stormwater Conferene - : Incorporating Green Infrastructure into Hazard Mitigation Plans
Communities across the country are facing challenges presented by an increase stormwater
runoff. Green infrastructure is one approach to addressing the problems associated with poor water quality and flooding caused by stormwater. The incorporation of green infrastructure into hazard mitigation planning is one option that municipalities may consider when looking for solutions. This presentation will discuss the benefits of integrating nature based stormwater controls into the hazard mitigation process. Lessons learned from pilot studies jointly conducted by EPA and FEMA will be
discussed, as well as resources that are available to assist municipalities in addressing climate resiliency.
This presentation will educate state and local decision makers that are working on stormwater related issues (planners, municipal engineers, etc.) on opportunities to broaden the opportunities to use nature based solutions in building resilient communities.
