“The DC Metro Area has long been a leader in the application of green infrastructure and we are delighted to be hosting an event to highlight accomplishments and explore future options for greater implementation of these technologies, particularly in light of the crazy weather that is occurring there." said Steven W. Peck, GRP, Honorary ASLA, Founder and President, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities. “Green infrastructure, if widely implemented, can significantly help future-proof our communities and protect Chesapeake Bay,” he added.

Chesapeake Bay is a crucial factor for many innovative policies and programs that have been implemented to accelerate the adoption of green infrastructure in the D.C. Metro Region. The Chesapeake Bay Watershed, home to more than 18 million people, is distinctly susceptible to the impacts of climate change—particularly to increasing flooding and more intense rainstorms.
