GCC workshops teach how to identify barriers to green stormwater infrastructure (GSI), and provide suggestions on how to further collaboration and consideration of GSI practices.

IN COLLABORATION with Smart Prosperity, Green Communities Canada recently presented five cross-Canada workshops on tools for communities to transform the way rain is managed on the urban landscape.

Events in Red Deer, AB, Saskatoon, SK, Charlottetown, PEI, Halifax, NS, and Kelowna, BC consisted of a presentation on stormwater user fees followed by a discussion of strategies for community-wide implementation of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI). Participants were guided in identifying barriers to GSI, and provided with suggestions on how to further collaboration and consideration of GSI practices.

The workshops engaged approximately 150 municipal officials, policy makers, engineers, community groups, environmental organizations, and interested citizens.
