The Pittsburgh Section-Environmental and Water Resources Institute will host an Urban Green Infrastructure Workshop on July 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Engineers' Society of Western PA, 337 Fourth Avenue in Pittsburgh.
This Spring, record-breaking rainfall throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania has brought stormwater management to the forefront of the public eye.
