ASLA seeking needs stormwater case studies for its survey!
Survey responses are needed by March 31st.
The American Society of Landscpae Architects (ASLA) is working to gather 300 green infrastructure case studies to submit to EPA, to aid in their rulemaking related to green infrastructure for stormwater management. Please submit information on stormwater management projects from your firm/organization by filling out the green infrastructure project survey
Your response to this survey is very important to every landscape architect and provides you an opportunity to showcase some of your own work. Here is the link to the recent Land Online for more information. It really doesn’t take too much of your time and your effort will be very much appreciated by ASLA, the EPA and many of your fellow members. Choose any topic you like, permeable paving, slope stabalization, water quality improvements etc.
