Stormwater Conference Focuses on Green Infrastructure and Surface Water Quality
PORTLAND, Ore., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Infrastructure, low-impact development and a healthy bottom line will be at the top of the list when leading experts on storm and surface-water quality get together August 3–7 to explore the newest water pollution prevention and mitigation technologies, share their recent experiences, and discuss strategies that are most effective in minimizing surface water pollution.
