Stormwater Finance Workshop Region 10: Addressing Stormwater Finance Needs

Managing stormwater can be a community’s most challenging and expensive problem. The price tag can be huge, the sources are diffuse, and public support is crucial to its success. EPA’s Water Finance Center and EPA Region 10 invite you to join us at the “Stormwater Financing: Innovative opportunities to help you address your stormwater challenges” workshop in Seattle, WA.

This workshop will be a facilitated discussion on current funding sources for stormwater projects, and how they are being utilized. It will cover gaps for long-term operation and maintenance, including the affordability of stormwater infrastructure through various funding sources. Regionally-specific stormwater challenges will also be covered. This workshop will be a chance to hear from you about the challenges you face and what can be done to address them.

Workshop attendees are encouraged to carpool and/or use public transit. Parking validation for the SeaPark Garage and Seattle Municipal Tower garage will also be available.
