  WEBINAR (Recorded November 13, 2012): Green Infrastructure - Why Should we care?
National experts describe the motivations, costs, and benefits for green infrastructure implementation. Obtain current information on green infrastructure trends as they apply to wastewater utilities and municipal stormwater managers both in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the United States. Case studies are presented to show the motivations for implementing green infrastructure to address water quality requirements in total maximum daily loads (TMDLs), water quantity management in combined and separate sewer systems, and other emerging applications.
  WEBINAR (recorded July 31, 2012): Starting from Zero - The Challenges in Creating a Regional Water Quality Collaborative
In this webinar, you'll get a quick update on regional water quality issues and then learn how Sweet Water, a small, low-profile organization based at the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences, collaborates to bring both local communities and major regulatory agencies together to create new approaches to improve water quality policy-making.

Based on a recent report of 12 states and over 30 nations, this webinar discusses: forces that are making access to freshwater a growing concern, wastewater problems and upcoming policy requirements. We'll also review the scale of the markets, the current strength of interest for solutions and the pressure different geographies are facing to find solutions.
