This important event will convene various water agencies, schools districts, administrators and staff, parent groups, and community-based organizations, among other experts, to spotlight the unique opportunities that schools hold to be sites for greening and stormwater capture projects.
Expert panelists will engage in insightful conversations covering three main topics:
- Highlight the multiple benefits of school stormwater and greening projects for students, their families, and the surrounding neighborhood community
- Describe specific case studies of impactful school-site projects with a special focus on how to locate, design, and implement projects by securing Measure W and Safe Clean Water Program funds
- Address liability considerations and how to overcome contractual barriers to implementing stormwater capture projects on school campuses
