2014 Clean Water Summit
In Minnesota, water is an important yet vulnerable resource we need to protect. Using green infrastructure to manage runoff in the urban landscape plays an important role in cleaning our water and provides multiple benefits to our communities. Yet widespread use on public and private property still isn't the norm. The 2014 Clean Water Summit will focus on both the costs and benefits of green infrastructure in development projects, including the economic, social, and ecological factors. Participants will learn how we currently value clean water, why we need to change the way we think about water as a finite resource, and tools and strategies that have been used to develop green infrastructure projects, leading to more partnerships, more implementation, greater acceptance, and cleaner water in our communities.
