Harvesting Innovations Workshop

Posted on February 8th, 2009 by Water Nymph in Rainwater Recovery News

arnoldarboretumPhil Reidy, President and Founder of Rainwater Recovery Inc., will be presenting on “New Thinking in Stormwater Management” at a symposium on integrated approaches to stormwater management at the Landscape Institue of the Arnold Arboretum on Friday, February 13. While he loves to share his passion for rainwater harvesting and integrated stormwater management systems with like-minded professionals, neophytes and clients alike, what makes this workshop particularly special for Phil is the other presenters – all longtime friends to Rainwater: Bethany Eisenberg, Queen of stormwater engineering and LID design at Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB); Charlie Miller, the technical and visionary energy behind Roofscapes, Inc. in Philadelphia and a U.S pioneer for engineered green roof implementation; and Marcus Quigley, the creative genius from Geosyntec Consultants, where he continues to push the envelope in the application of integrated stormwater solutions and real-time control and data systems. This is a team of water experts anyone would be proud to be on. All in one place.

This workshop will explore various aspects of current and future stormwater management practices, including the trends in integrated systems incorporating rainwater/stormwater harvesting and green roofs with other storm water control techniques. Included will be an investigation of the impacts of introducing real-time controls and modeling software into the designs of these systems. The overall goal is to combine available tools and new technologies to meet stormwater flow mitigation and water conservation objectives on a site, campus, regional, citywide scale.

We hope to see you there!

The course is given through The Landscape Institute of the Arnold Arboretum/Harvard University.
