Huge Response to Call for EPA Case Studies
2011-04-07

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of the ASLA membership and other practitioners, ASLA was able to submit to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 459 green infrastructure projects and case studies that address stormwater management.    These efforts will go a long way in demonstrating the effectiveness in utilizing landscape architecture techniques helping to manage our nations’ water quality issues.  

In the coming weeks, ASLA will be working with the Environmental Protection Agency to review and analyze the information and data from your projects and how it will assist with the national proposed rulemaking to strengthen stormwater management.   ASLA is also working to develop an online tool to share your projects with our members and the public.

For those who would still like to submit additional case studies, we will leave the survey open for an additional week.  Also, we encourage you to submit your projects and case studies to the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Landscape Performance Series, an online resource to demonstrate the value of sustainable landscape design.

Thanks again for your efforts to promote green infrastructure practices in your community and for demonstrating that landscape architects have been, and will continue to be, national leaders on green infrastructure and stormwater management.
