Washington, D.C. — EPA's Green Infrastructure program will host a webcast on December 8, 2015 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. EST titled "Ahead of the Curve – Implementing Green Infrastructure in Rural and Growing Communities."

Green infrastructure is often framed as an approach to improving communities and addressing water quality in large urban areas, where high concentrations of impervious surfaces can result in large volumes of stormwater runoff. However, green infrastructure can also provide multiple benefits for small, growing communities and those in rural areas.

This webcast will showcase two such communities, Monona, Iowa and Clarkesville, Ga., that are ahead of the curve in using green infrastructure to address some of their stormwater management challenges. Rural communities and small MS4s in particular will want to tune in to learn how to replicate these projects at home.
