Houston Land/Water Sustainability ForumHouston Land/Water Sustainability Forum
Purpose: To enhance, enable, and integrate sustainable use of land and water for the Houston area’s continued growth and economic vitality.
Maintaining the pace of growth and development in the greater Houston area requires that those with a vested interest adopt new ideas and employ new methods that will insure that growth can be sustained. The forum seeks to engage the broadest possible range of constituent groups, in a collaborative effort that focuses on practical application rather than abstract theory in the exploration of incremental answers to some of the Houston area’s most significant land/water sustainability issues.
Major Projects: Host events such as the Low Impact Design Competition and facilitate events such as the International Low Impact Development Conference and the EPA Region 6 MS4 Stormwater Conference.
Meetings: Monthly meetings of the Forum are held at a rotating roster of conference facilities offered by supportive agencies and organizations located throughout the area. These educational sessions present speakers who have expertise or experience to share on land/water sustainability issues, and many of the speakers come from the constituencies that make up the Forum. In-depth multi-day events, with speakers and workshop leaders from across the country are also a part of the annual slate of programming.
