Green Infrastructure Webinars
Rural Roads GI Practices
Guest Speaker Rachel Beauregard, Vermont Agency of Transportation Better Backroads Program
During this session we’ll learn about innovative, relatively inexpensive ways that municipalities
can manage rural (unpaved) roads using a variety of easy-to-implement practices.
Recently the Lake Champlain Basin Program and Watershed Consulting Associates developed a manual on
using Green Infrastructure (GI) for stormwater management for municipal officials in New York’s Lake
Champlain Basin. The manual covers implementation of GI in environments typically encountered by municipalities – village (developed) streets, rural roads, parking lots and hardscapes, and buildings. The manual also discusses planning and implementation, operation and maintenance, and how to get your project funded. LCBP is offering a series of one-hour webinars to explain the manual’s contents and highlight examples of GI.
