Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on how communities can integrate green infrastructure into their Local Hazard Mitigation Plans.

 

Communities across the United States are facing a variety of challenges, from outdated infrastructure, to water quality protection, to the need to increase community resilience and mitigate the impacts of flooding and other hazards. These communities are looking for multi-purpose solutions to these challenges.

 

Green infrastructure is one approach to improve water quality and address flooding challenges. Green infrastructure yields many benefits, including improved water quality, reduced flooding, infrastructure cost savings, and healthier communities. While green infrastructure alone may not fully address these issues, however, it adds capacity, flexibility, and resilience to other infrastructure systems and provides multiple community benefits.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and stormwater engineers who are interested in examining how communities can integrate green infrastructure into their Local Hazard Mitigation Plans.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the concept of developing a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
  • Understanding the issues, requirements and evolution of stormwater management
  • Learning how to integrate green infrastructure into the mitigation planning process
  • Identifying important considerations for communities interested in pursuing this approach
  • Exploring the green infrastructure integration efforts in the area under study
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, "Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans”, which is based on the EPA document “Storm Smart Cities: Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans”, reference EPA 903-K-18-001, dated March 2018.
