Penn State Extension Hosts Dec. 13 Webinar On Implementing Green Stormwater Infrastructure

Penn State Extension will host another in a series of Water Cooler Talks December 13 on Implementing Green Stormwater Infrastructure from Noon to 1:00 p.m.

Green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) is a popular way to mitigate stormwater and provide other ecosystem services. Implementing GSI at the required scale is challenging due to its decentralized nature.
