Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Christopher C. Obropta, Ph.D, P.E,  Extension Specialist in Water Resources at Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, will give a presentation  to local planning boards, zoning boards, township councils and even the general public on green infrastructure planning and implementation.  The goal of this presentation will be to empower attendees to:
  1. Take action by updating local ordinances and master plans to incorporate green infrastructure
  2. Take action by working with Rutgers and others to develop green infrastructure plans for their community (Impervious Cover Assessments (ICAs), Impervious Cover Reduction Action Plans (RAPs), and Green Infrastructure Feasibility Studies
  3. Implement green infrastructure demonstration projects in their community
  4. Develop master plans to incorporate green infrastructure and other sustainable practices into corporate campus, school campus, and other larger properties
  5. Encourage individuals to become green infrastructure champions
