All-Day event with LI Green Building leaders

This Conference will facilitate the successful use of green technologies to manage water quality and energy issues by municipalities, private developers and the general public.

General and technical information on cost effective green infrastructure techniques that increase sustainability, cost effective use of renewable energy, increase stormwater infiltration, and preventing adverse impacts to Long Island’s valuable water resources will be presented. Regional success stories will show how green infrastructure has been beneficially put into place and how these methods can be funded through difficult economic times.

Marrying Green Infrastructure for water quality and energy production is the future of designing and engineering practices.

Who Should Attend: Elected Officials, Planning and Zoning Board Members, Municipal Engineers, Building and Public Works Department Employees, Landscape Architects, Regional Planners and Developers.

Organizing Committee: Hempstead Harbor Protection Committee, Long Island Chapter of the United States Green Building Council, Manhasset Bay Protection Committee, New York Sea Grant, Oyster Bay / Cold Spring Harbor Protection Committee and Suffolk County Cornell Cooperative Extension.
