350NM Speaker Series – Albuquerque Green Stormwater Ordinance

May 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm MDT

What: ABQ City Council Unanimously Passes Green Stormwater Ordinance

Who: City Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn (Dist. 7) & Sarah Hurteau, ecologist.

Where: Zoom registration LINK

Description: Climate change is here in New Mexico prompting the urgent need for policies that reflect this growing challenge. Green Stormwater Infrastructure/Low Impact Development (GSI/LID) integrate climate adaptation strategies into stormwater management. This might not sound exciting, but reusing stormwater runoff as an asset to support trees and other landscapes in our high desert environment can make all the difference.

A recent partnership between the Albuquerque Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn, and the Arid LID Coalition resulted in the unanimous adoption of a complete streets ordinance that includes green stormwater infrastructure practices. Councilor Fiebelkorn will explain how she worked with the skeptical council majority to embrace this forward looking water management ordinance. The presenters  will discuss what GSI is, how it supports climate adaptation strategies, and what the new ordinance will change.
