January’s GSI Partners Quarterly Meeting will feature guest, Robert J Woodman, Senior Stormwater Engineer at ACF Environmental for a presentation and discussion about Philadelphia’s and NYC’s urban green infrastructure programs.
Over the next few decades both the City of Philadelphia “Green City-Clean Waters” and NYC DEP Green Infrastructure programs are seeking to manage tens of thousands of acres of impervious area including thousands of miles of streets through the implementation of a variety of low impact development and green infrastructure BMPs. Both cities have been early adopters and emerged as national leaders in this space.
This presentation will highlight the collaboration of Philadelphia’s and NYC’s urban green infrastructure programs. As well as an overview of recent custom devices that have been designed and piloted in each City in the quest to better protect existing and future GI assets that will also improve the effectiveness and ease of maintenance.
