The era of taking water for granted is over. Climate change and aging infrastructure has prioritized water in the planning and design of our buildings, landscapes, and communities. The most desirable and resilient communities rely on “integrated water strategies,” ways of handling water that integrate built and natural environments, ecological science with traditional planning and design, and the people who live and work there. When designing a site – at the building or district scale – as part of a watershed and as habitat for all life, amazing things can happen. Understanding a project’s water footprint focuses resources on increasing resiliency through expanded habitat and greenspace, net zero water, and water reuse. This holistic approach to infrastructure respects the natural water cycle and access to clean water. This holistic approach to infrastructure respects the natural water cycle and access to clean water. This webinar will help you understand district-scale opportunities. Attendees will learn about integrated infrastructure, water resources, and ecological benefits.
