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.
