Implementing Water Quality

Implementing Water Quality for the 6th Borough

While there is much to celebrate about the new commitment to green infrastructure from New York City, there is much to do in order to implement green infrastructure projects. This panel will give an overview of the current implementation plans for water quality improvements with an emphasis on green infrastructure in both New York City and New Jersey. The panel will explore the challenges of implementation, inclusion of communities and how we get the biggest bang for the green infrastructure buck.
