Curriculum Development: Green Stormwater Infrastructure Operation + Maintenance
Posted on: June 30, 2014
We are excited to announce a collaboration with staff at AKRF, EPA, and the DEP, and faculty at Temple and Villanova Universities. We are putting our heads together to develop a short curriculum based on the recently released draft Green Infrastructure Maintenance Manual that would be targeted at local firms interested in providing O+M services for public and private stormwater management practices. We’ll also be working with PWD to get their approval of the final curriculum.
The training would support Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters program, address the growing need for more qualified local contractors who can perform this work (in Philadelphia and surrounding municipalities), and further the larger mission of creating more local and sustainable green jobs in the Philadelphia area.
