Event name: The 2006 Urban Watersheds Revitalization Conference
Event Date: May 18-19, 2006

Throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania neighborhoods, residents are trying to protect and enhance their quality of life. By integrating stormwater management strategies into their community development plans, they address important issues such as flood minimization, green and open space protection, clean water and air, and an aesthetically pleasing environment.

For more than a decade, local government, businesses, non-profits and citizen groups have recognized the need to manage stormwater in a way that supports both a community’s infrastructure and addresses its natural resource demands. The varied efforts to respond to these needs include state sponsored stormwater management plans, regional watershed management plans, open space planning, vacant land reuse and community planning.

The Urban Watersheds Revitalization Conference will feature inspiring presentations that illustrate developments that are considerate of neighborhood character, infrastructure and the environment, and respect a community’s multiple needs.

Description: Co-Sponsored by the Philadelphia Water Department and The Pennsylvania Environmental Council, this conference features a Stormwater BMP Awards Recognition Ceremony and a Smart Growth Panel. To register or for information, check out the website or call Khiet at 215 592-7020 x107
