Innovative Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Financing Strategies
Originally Aired November 19, 2020
Storm water infrastructure is as important to quality of life as wastewater and water infrastructure, roads or electricity. And while solutions to address storm water problems are rather clear, paying for those solutions is a little murky. This webinar will provide an overview of storm water financing strategies for implementing storm water and green infrastructure.
Through valuable case studies, this webinar will also describe the steps needed to implement storm water utilities: feasibility study, outreach strategy, program review, rate structure and implementation strategy. Lessons learned on how to enhance stakeholder support will also be presented.
Notably, this session will provide an overview of the March 2020 EPA report: “Evaluating Stormwater Infrastructure Funding and Financing,” which was developed in response to Section 4101 of the 2018 America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) and the impact of affordability considerations on rates and the selection of financing strategies.
