The presentation will conclude with a brief industry update on the status of the NCMA's and ICPI's ongoing efforts to support the commercial and DOT markets including proposed changes to standards and test methods that impact unit concrete products.

#67: How to Succeed With Your Green Infrastructure Project

Presented by Kari Mackenbach, MS Consultants and David Weaver, AECOM. As communities become more aware of the many benefits of green infrastructure, interest is growing in adding sustainable green practices to existing gray systems. Many communities have adopted performance standards or incentives promoting green infrastructure and many more have built demonstration projects but single-purpose gray systems remain the common place. Barriers to green infrastructure can arise throughout the development process - from the design of green infrastructure systems to their permitting and installation - but these barriers are increasingly well understood.
