The Great Lakes & St. Lawrence Green Infrastructure Conference is the first conference to focus on using green infrastructure across the landscape with a primary goal of protecting the surface waters in the Great Lakes region. The time is right for a comprehensive look at this important topic.
The conference location is in the middle of the Great Lakes chain and at the forefront of many innovative green infrastructure projects. In fact, much of Detroit is being recreated from the ground up. Together, City leaders, industry experts, universities, and non-profits are finding ways to reduce the burden on combined sewers for less than the cost of storing and treating combined effluent. They are making neighborhoods feel safer and more inviting by increasing green acreage throughout the city. These efforts benefit not just the City, but also the Great Lakes – by reducing nutrient inputs to Lake Erie, and all Great Lakes’ and St. Lawrence waters downstream.
