Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program

Green Stormwater Infrastructure Webinar Series


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection partnered with the Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ program and Ferguson Waterworks to host a nine-part webinar series informing communities on green stormwater infrastructure and how they can implement these methods to protect Florida's water resources.

Supplementing conventional stormwater management with these new methods can enhance the performance of an entire drainage system. These techniques deliver environmental, social and economic benefits to communities, including reducing water pollution and improving quality of ground and surface waters.

The webinars cover topics ranging from funding to design, maintenance, ordinance compliance, and more.
