Stormwater and Sustainability Conference

Cross-department, cross-agency, business and community leadership teams will converge at the Urban Water Sustainability Leadership Conference in a “World Water Hub”, Milwaukee, WI, on October 3-5, 2011.  They will focus on proven and possible paths to green, as EPA prepares new stormwater regulations, due December 2, 2011.  The event is hosted by the Clean Water America Alliance.  Conference partners include Smart Growth America, American Rivers, and the National Association of Clean Water Agencies.

Conference Highlights:

  • Austin, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Louisville, and Seattle will be spotlighted for how they’ve developed green infrastructure to complement gray and turned waste to precious resources while engaging public support and saving dollars.
  • Through small and focused dialogues (“Sidebar Conversations”) urban leaders will strategize and tackle common barriers and opportunities, such as maintenance, finance, and public lands, to name a few.
  • Full resource recovery will be explored, as businesses and utilities reclaim the wealth in wastewater.

Conference registration fees are priced specifically to attract state and local government representation.  For more information, and to register, please visit http://conta.cc/2011UWSLC.
