Washington, D.C. — A 90-minute webcast sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Wastewater Management and the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Project Development and Environmental Review will showcase the District of Columbia Department of Transportation's recently released Green Infrastructure Standards, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation's Asset Management Program for tracking, inspecting and maintaining best management practices.
This webcast, June 19, 2014, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT, will discuss how green infrastructure practices can be more cost-effectively incorporated into roadway projects when considered from the outset of the planning and design phases. Just like other infrastructure, proper operation and maintenance of these practices is also a key component to ensure their continued effectiveness to reduce pollutant loadings.
