Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink!” is the opening to this dynamic presentation focusing on solutions to Fairfield, Iowa's stormwater problem.
“Stormwater is the leading cause of water pollution in America,” continues Tom Barrett, the presenter and owner of Green Water Infrastructure. This presentation focuses on developing sustainable solutions to water quality issues in Southeastern Iowa. Mr Barrett’s approach utilizes a watershed and drainage basin study to stormwater mitigation.
Developing a comprehensive stormwater plan, when correctly prioritized, combines existing grey infrastructure with new technologies developed in green infrastructure, creating cost effective solutions to our water quality issues.
