AWRA-WA Seattle August 2019 Dinner Meeting:

Facing and Meeting Stormwater Funding Challenges in Washington State

Speaker: Dr. Gretchen Greene, Greene Economics

 Thursday, August 15th, 2019

Pyramid Alehouse Restaurant

1201 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134

 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (presentation begins at 7:00)


Abstract: After working on a state-wide effort to estimate funding needs for stormwater infrastructure to the year 2036 a couple of years ago, Gretchen Greene and the economists from Greene Economics learned that though the funding need was vast, stormwater management held the promise of providing benefits to address a host of other critical water issues facing Washington State. This presentation will cover the findings from a subsequent article on stormwater funding in Washington written for The Water Report. Topics discussed will include a review of the regulatory environment, an overview of innovative stormwater funding strategies in Washington and elsewhere, a discussion of current challenges, and recommendations going forward.

Bio: Dr. Gretchen Greene has over 25 years of diverse economics experience in water, natural resource, energy, and community economics. She has worked with numerous federal, state, tribal, and municipal agencies as well as private industrial clients and law firms. She holds a Ph.D. in Food and Resource Economics from the University of Florida.
