More and more municipalities in Southeastern Wisconsin are finding a place for green infrastructure stormwater management practices in their stormwater “toolbox.” Meanwhile, municipal stormwater permits from the state and TMDL requirements both generate opportunities to use green infrastructure to realize multiple objectives and benefits for the municipality and the community at large. Attend this workshop and hear from other municipalities in the region what they have done to take advantage of these opportunities. If you are municipal staff in stormwater, engineering, public works, planning, or community development, or if you work for a consulting firm that assists municipalities with stormwater planning, design, and/or construction, this workshop is for you!
