EPA encourages the use of green infrastructure as a cost-effective strategy for managing stormwater discharges and improving water quality. In many states, the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit acts as a regulatory driver to encourage or require implementation of green infrastructure in MS4 communities. EPA’s Compendium of MS4 Permitting Approaches Part 6: Green Infrastructure presents a variety of existing permitting approaches and examples of how MS4 permittees implement green infrastructure permit requirements. These can serve as a road map for permitting authorities and permittees that are interested in incorporating green infrastructure into permitting programs or identifying successful strategies to maintain compliance. For this webinar, speakers whose permits featured in the Compendium will take a deep dive into their MS4 permit requirements and local green infrastructure projects. Join EPA’s Green Infrastructure Webcast Series to discuss the influence of MS4 permits on green infrastructure programs and implementation in MS4 communities.
