Focus: Green Infrastructure for Clean Water: The Essential Role of Soil

Soil is an essential component of green infrastructure in stormwater management. It provides structure beneath our feet, stores nutrients for plant growth, filters contaminants from runoff, and regulates the movement of water. The 2012 Clean Water Summit will focus on the concept of "living" soil, how it functions, and the connection between healthy soil and clean water in our communities.

Featured presentations will address policies and practices related to soil, from a landscape scale to an individual site, and motivate participants to protect our soil systems, rejuvenate disturbed soil, and use soil effectively for stormwater management. Minnesota Sea Grant is an Endorsing Organization for this event. John Bilotta, MNSG's Water Resource Management and Policy Extension Educator, serves on the planning committee.
