Climate Ready Coast and Green Infrastructure Design
Join us for a full day workshop! Directions to the Wells Reserve Campus. Tickets are nonrefundable, but can be transferred.
"Climate Ready Coast" is a 2-year project to create Maine’s first regional coastal resilience plan for the state’s ten southernmost communities, from Kittery to Scarborough.
When we think about developing climate resilient stormwater infrastructure, the two major goals are: creating stormwater infrastructure that can withstand the impacts of climate change and creating systems that minimize the risk of flooding and erosion due to changing weather patterns that are the result of climate change. These are important because they protect public safety and property, maintain community infrastructure, reduce economic impacts of storm events and help adapt to changing climate conditions.
Incorporating green infrastructure elements and adding stormwater capacity are critical to achieving these goals and therefore expanding the use of green infrastructure practices and finding opportunities to implement them in our communities are priorities when it comes to creating a climate resilient community.
