Landscape Architects Own Water.
Now Is the Time to Prove It!
Landscape architects are on the design front lines using green infrastructure technologies to address stormwater management issues in communities everywhere. Now itâ€™s time to share your story. It was said recently that, â€œlandscape architects own waterâ€, now itâ€™s time to step up and prove it. Submit your case studies today to ensure that landscape architects will continue to â€œown waterâ€ tomorrow.
EPA is seeking at least 300 of your green infrastructure/low impact development case studies to demonstrate the capacity and expertise on the ground to implement a new national stormwater management rule. To date we are well short of this goal.
The March 31st deadline is fast-approaching. Please take the time to help provide this critical data. There are powerful groups mobilizing to ensure this rule is either defeated or watered down. EPA is looking to landscape architects to prove that green infrastructure technologies are efficient and cost effective. Help provide the data and rationale for moving the countryâ€™s stormwater management infrastructure into the 21st Century.

Thank you for your efforts to help your communities and build the profession!
