There is much information available on green stormwater infrastructure, including design considerations
and methods for modeling its effectiveness. Use of low impact development and BMPs aimed at treating
and/or keeping runoff onsite is increasingly practiced in Illinois and nationally. There is still much debate
and discussion regarding when these methods are cost-effective as compared to more traditional ‘gray’
infrastructure. This workshop will compare costs of green and gray infrastructure and provide considerations
of the elements that influence the selection of one or the other.
This seminar is intended for stormwater engineers, permitting agencies, contractors and developers. The
event will begin with an EPA update on the NPDES Rules Making status and then proceed with providing
a framework of factors that influence the evaluation of cost. Subsequent presentations will then focus on
real-life case studies, presented by both private and public sector subject matter experts. .
