Insights from green stormwater infrastructure leaders and practitioners in Tucson, New Orleans, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia on WaterNow’s recent webinar with the AAAS EPI Center provided practical and inspirational ways other cities and stormwater managers can navigate data and implementation challenges.
