Insights into maintaining green infrastructure stormwater BMPs from the perspective of a municipal water district and Dr. Bill Hunt, NCSU, one of the country’s leading LID stormwater engineers.
(2014) PowerPoint presentation of an EPA Green Infrastructure Webcast Series by Karen Sands, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and Dr. Bill Hunt, Professor and Extension Specialist, NC State University. Green infrastructure is becoming more popular in the Milwaukee Sewerage District along with the understanding of the need to maintain it. The three critical components are having a structured maintenance program, people to do the monitoring and the maintenance work and finally ways to hold down costs. NC State University’s Dr. Bill Hunt has developed a stormwater BMP maintenance and certification program that he presents along with detailed information about permeable pavement maintenance, guidelines for mowing and pruning and other maintenance practices and tips.
