Green Infrastructure: The Basics Presentation and Panel Discussion
Includes a Live Event on 2021/11/09 at 1:00 PM (MST)
Hosted by the International Erosion Control Association
Tuesday, November 9: 1:00PM Mountain Time
Wednesday, November 10: 7:00AM Sydney Time
Credit Hours: 1.5
Join the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) for Green Infrastructure: The Basics. Green Infrastructure, also known as Green Stormwater Infrastructure, is a holistic way of treating stormwater while also providing other valuable ecosystem services. This presentation will explore the basics of green infrastructure, its evolution from Low Impact Development, and its provisioning of ecosystem services. The types of measures used as part of green infrastructure will be reviewed.
After the presentation, we will have a panel discussion that will give a glimpse of the real-world implementation of green infrastructure. Mr. Jordan Miller will discuss green infrastructure practices employed in Charlotte, NC, and how those practices are motivated by the City of Charlotte’s MS4 permit. Dr. Scott Rogers of the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) will discuss the unique challenges DOTs face in implementing green infrastructure and practices employed by ALDOT that account for those challenges. Ms. Nancy Schumm of Prime AE Group will also join the panel to share her experiences in consulting with various MS4-regulated municipalities to determine green infrastructure practices that best fit the municipalities.
Presented By Dr. Bill Hunt

Dr. BIll Hunt
NC State University Professor & Leader of the Stormwater Engineering Group
Stormwater Engineering Group
Seriously: I function as the leader of the Stormwater Engineering Group, with a focus on Low Impact Development and Green Infrastructure. I have co-authored more than 130 peer-refereed journal articles, two books, and many extension publications. As a team, we have designed and/or monitored more than 250 stormwater control measures. Every year I conduct 20-25 workshops in North Carolina, the US, and abroad. I teach a variety of classes including: Introduction to Engineering (E101), Grand Challenges of Engineering (E102), Ecological Engineering (BAE474), and Design of Stormwater Control Measures (BAE 575). My newest endeavor is a study abroad course entitled: Engineering in the Roman Times (BAE 495).
Interesting things: I love people and sharing a good laugh. Wolfpack sports are both a blessing and a bane, but such is life for a fan of the underdog. Traveling and my five kids bring me my greatest joys in life.
