Using green infrastructure to manage runoff in the urban landscape provides multiple benefits to our communities, yet this practice still isn’t the norm. The 2014 Clean Water Summit will focus on both the costs and benefits of green infrastructure, including economic, social, and ecological factors. The summit features a keynote address by journalist Charles Fishman, author of The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water, and presentations on community change using green infrastructure, the emerging economics of natural capital and ecosystem services, cost-benefit tools, and case studies of small- and large-scale projects.
