GSI Partners Quarterly Meeting: April 2018

Wednesday, April 24, 8:00 - 10:30 AM

Join SBN’s GSI Partners on Tuesday, April 24 at Temple University City Center to explore applications for innovation within the GSI industry.

To continue to expand vegetative SMPs and other green infrastructure projects within the region and beyond, there is a need for businesses, organizations, governments, and utilities to come together to innovate. While technology and innovative products certainly help with this, advancements in processes that help to implement, maintain, and incentivize practices and tools that take a nature based approach to stormwater management are a necessity.

With greater uncertainty about growth, urbanization, and patterns of future precipitation events, there is a growing need for communities to facilitate the implementation of innovative solutions to manage our ever evolving stormwater management challenges. These challenges present stakeholders with opportunities to bring forward creative, scalable solutions and create entire new markets through co-operative arrangements such as public-private partnerships.

OptiRTC* will highlight how the City of Philadelphia is enabling a collaborative ecosystem across multiple sectors to deliver innovative stormwater solutions across the city and also share some examples of how a variety of organizations have come together to deliver and implement successful stormwater management projects.

Additionally, on the agenda are GSI Partners programmatic updates and structured time for engaging and conversing with your peers.

8:00 AM – Doors Open
8:30 AM – Agenda Begins
10:30 AM – End

Free to members; $25 to non-members.
Breakfast and coffee will be provided.

Opti is focused on improving water quality, preventing localized flooding, and reducing combined sewer overflows through Continuous Monitoring and Adaptive Control (CMAC) of stormwater infrastructure. CMAC technology automatically controls the timing and rate of stormwater flow through existing and new facilities, enabling them to plan, observe, and respond to storm events predictively. For infrastructure owners, CMAC reduces operating and capital costs, enables environmental compliance, and reduces risk from volatile environmental conditions and uncertain future growth.
