More than 25 individuals packed a Jeffords Hall Conference Room at UVM on Thursday, October 24. They were there to learn about the complex interactions between soil and stormwater. The workshop provided in-depth information about soil characteristics, soil mapping, groundwater hydrology, and factors that influence infiltration. This information was supplemented by a presentation highlighting local examples of green stormwater infrastructure in Essex, Burlington, and Waitsfield. A tour of the UVM Bioretention Laboratory rounded out the day. The workshop was coordinated by the Green Infrastructure Initiative, a Watershed Management Division program that promotes nature-based methods of stormwater management throughout Vermont.
A very special thank you goes out to our volunteer presenters: Caroline Alves, Brian Tremback, Andres Torizzo, Stephanie Hurley, and Amanda Cording.
