As we move towards embracing green infrastructure to improve stormwater management, ongoing questions remain regarding maintenance, monitoring, and mosquitos, as well as the relationship between green and gray infrastructure. This Walk + Learn, co-hosted by Propeller and the Greater New Orleans Water Collaborative, will take us out into the field to see green infrastructure in action at NORA’s Broad Street Rain Garden (2222 North Broad) and includes a tour of the Sewerage and Water Board’s Pump Station No. 3. Please join us to learn more about rain gardens and how local agencies and entrepreneurs are working together to build, monitor, and maintain these sites for water management.
