This is not a KCA presentation, but it sounds very relevant to our current discussions about better ways to manage stormwater and other drainage issues in South Maui.

Green Infrastructure for Healthy Communities

Dec. 15 at 6 pm MST                                         CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Utilities and municipalities are challenged to go beyond traditional levels of service to deliver solutions that mitigate climate impacts, improve infrastructure and address broader community needs. Due to its cross-cutting benefits as a strategy, communities are increasing prioritization and investments in green infrastructure to manage stormwater objectives while enhancing community health, improving overall infrastructure and providing opportunities, especially for disadvantaged populations. Additionally, as a nature-based solution, green infrastructure provides a resilient solution set to mitigate and address the impacts of climate change. This webinar will provide motivation and drivers for green infrastructure, case studies and concepts exploring policy and equity for green infrastructure from stormwater parks to healthy streets to a wide variety of community amenities.
