Free event! Learn how CSO plans can address climate change

December 12th, 2019 by

Climate-Ready CSO Solutions ForumClimate change is here. New Jersey municipalities are already struggling with sea level rise, more intense storms, and extreme heat. As 21 cities plan upgrades worth billions for their outdated combined sewer systems, are they taking these dangers into account?

Learn how municipalities can factor climate change in their combined sewer overflow (CSO) long term control plans at a free event on January 28. Join New Jersey Future, the Sewage-Free Streets and Rivers campaign, and the New Jersey Climate Change Alliance for a conversation with state and local leaders to learn how they’re planning to incorporate climate challenges into sewer system upgrades and how those upgrades will affect your neighborhood. Most importantly, explore solutions everyone can work toward. 

This event has been certified for the following continuing education credits:
American Institute of Certified Planners (2.0 certification maintenance credits)
NJ State Board of Professional Engineers & Land Surveyors (2.0 CPC credits)
