Economic Ecology | 1.5 CM

December 4, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Green Infrastructure and Stormwater Management Speaker Series Presents
Economic Ecology: Restoration of the Floodplain as an Alternative Solution to Regulatory and Environmental Challenges
Speaker: Mark Guttshall, Landstudies
Approved for 1.5 CM Credits
 
This presentation will demonstrate how municipal officials, developers, and professional consultants can deal with flooding, stormwater, MS4, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), and the economic and environmental benefits achieved using floodplain restoration.
 
Several case studies will showcase “regional” examples of pollutant removal and flood reduction. Discussions will emphasize incentive based approaches for future funding. A common theme in this presentation is the restoration or manipulation of the floodplain that is an alternative solution to today’s regulatory and environmental challenges.
