Title: Kickoff Meeting for the STAR Grantees: Performance and Effectiveness of Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management in Philadelphia, PA
Date: July 24, 2014
9:00 am – 4:00 pm EDT
Location: US EPA Region 3
1650 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
and Online Webinar
Purpose:

EPA is pleased to present the five new grant awards focused on the performance and effectiveness of green infrastructure (GI)stormwater management in an urban area.  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is the case study site.  A goal of this research is to improve the understanding of the performance and effectiveness of GI, including the combined effects of multiple GI tools, approaches or methodologies in highly urbanized areas. Projects leverage resources and utilize strategic partnerships to address the complexities of urban communities and contribute to a more holistic understanding of the potential of green infrastructure in the urban water cycle.

For more details on the STAR grants, please see: Performance and Effectiveness of Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management in Philadelphia, PA.

Location: Webinar
Purpose:

Join us for this month's webinar: Environmental Exposures and Neurodevelopmental Health Outcomes

This webinar will discuss the role of environmental developmental outcomes and the need to sort out the complexity and dynamics of environmental exposure. The two talks will highlight work on POPs as well as episodic tobacco smoke exposures. We will look at two key areas of neurodevelopmental interest: Autism and ADHD. Mechanisms of immune response, as well as epigenetic changes will be explored. Lessons learned across these areas will be shared.
