Dig Deep For A Greener NY

Thursday, Oct 9, 2014

Don't miss the first event in our WorkPolicy Forums: Green Infrastructure. A challenge to NYC's water quality is combined sewer overflows (CSOs), which discharge untreated sewage and storm water runoff into our waterways. The city has piloted green infrastructure projects as a more cost-effective way of managing CSOs than traditional gray infrastructure. Green infrastructure also has quality-of-life benefits and the potential to mitigate flooding, a threat in the face of sea level rise and more frequent storms.

Sponsors: New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund & NYU/Wagner's Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems

Panel 1: Is New York City's green infrastructure program achieving its aims?

Panel 2: Should green infrastructure be expanded as a flood management and climate resiliency tool?

Moderator: David Giambusso, Energy & Environment Reporter - Capital NY
