CitiesAlive: 14th Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference

Rising to the Stormwater Challenge!

Washington, DC | November 1-4, 2016

Washington DC is currently a leader in green roof implementation and policy. Stormwater management is a critical requirement in Washington DC and many other jurisdictions. 14th Annual CitiesAlive Green Roofs and Wall Conference, November 1-4, Washington DC will focus on stormwater management - policies, technologies, design and best management practices. 

This conference will feature presentations and panel discussions highlighting the following topics: 

  • How to maximize stormwater retention - technologies and design 
  • Policy best management practices - feebates, grant programs, credits, minimum standards, construction stands, maintenance standards
  • Green roofs and walls as part of an integrated building & site approach to stormwater management - case studies 
  • The economics (costs + benefits) of various best management practices for stormwater retention - comparing apples to apples - short and medium term perspectives 
  • Looking beyond stormwater to other tangible benefits and the role of private investment 
  • Design and testing methods and measurement tools 
  • Stormwater economics - flooding, erosion control, tanks 
  • Stormwater as a resource - rainwater harvesting best practices, storage and irrigation systems
