Integrating Green Infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation 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Communities across the United States are facing a variety of challenges, from outdated infrastructure, to water quality protection, to the need to increase community resilience and mitigate the impacts of flooding and other hazards. 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.
Moreover, integrating green infrastructure into Local Hazard Mitigation Plans ensures that communities can secure funding, meet regulations, ensure public safety, and encourage sustainable economic growth. When these plans interconnect, communities increase the likelihood that these plans will be realized.
This 1 PDH online interactive presentation 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.
This PE continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Providing an overview of Local Hazard Mitigation Planning
- Understanding the issues, requirements and evolution of stormwater management
- Capturing the approach used to establish a planning team
- Identifying lessons learned and important considerations for other communities interested in pursuing this approach
- Providing a crosswalk for integrating green infrastructure into the steps for Local Hazard Mitigation Planning
