EPA's 9th Annual Campus RainWorks Challenge
EPA is pleased to launch its 9th annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a green infrastructure design competition for American colleges and universities that seeks to engage with the next generation of environmental professionals, foster a dialogue about the need for innovative stormwater management, and showcase the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure practices. Stormwater pollution is a problem that impacts public health and water quality in communities across the country. The Campus RainWorks Challenge invites today’s students to become part of the solution. This webcast includes information on the challenge's design categories, rules for participation, and features perspective from faculty advisors and students that have previously participated.
