In the wonderful Hudson Valley, nothing can be more important than preserving the cleanliness of our local watersheds.  Employing green solutions to parking, paving and drainage in developed areas is a critical factor in maintaining a healthy environment and  stormwater management is a key component for developing a sustainable site.  New regulations now require use of low impact development techniques, also known as green infrastructure, to control stormwater.  This presentation will give an overview of what is required, what has worked in the field, and how LEED points can be met with innovative stormwater management.

 Light refreshments will be provided.
