On Tuesday, October 11th, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCV EF) will host a policy forum on Green Infrastructure in the Buffalo-Niagara Region to answer important questions about green infrastructure in Western New York. RSVP Today.
This policy forum will feature 2 panel discussions between policymakers, green infrastructure experts, and local community-based organizations about the role of green infrastructure in improving the region’s water quality and contributing to sustainable economic growth.
The NYLCV EF will examine recent green infrastructure projects, explore ongoing work in the region and across the state, and discuss how municipalities can further leverage federal, state, and local interest in green infrastructure programs to foster sustainable economic development.
Nearly 6 out of every 10 sanitary sewer overflows in New York State occur in Erie County. The good news is, there is a promising solution that can protect our waterways while creating opportunities for sustainable economic development.
Research shows that green infrastructure can reduce pressure on gray infrastructure and help control combined sewer overflows during periods of heavy rain. Green infrastructure has also been associated with a number of social, economic, and ecological benefits.
