New principles to guide green infrastructure decisions
In this American City & County podcast, Associate Editor Larry Conley speaks with Howard LaFever, a veteran environmental engineer, who was recently named Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Washington-based Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI). The organization promotes the use of sustainable design and techniques to improve the nation’s roads, pipelines and other infrastructure while also helping reduce pollution, stormwater runoff and soil erosion.
In the interview, LaFever explains how communities can build and repair infrastructure in sustainable ways. For information about ISI’s Envision rating system for infrastructure projects, visit www.sustainableinfrastructure.org.
