The University at Buffalo and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will team up Thursday to host a green infrastructure forum.

The forum will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Clinical and Translational Research Center, 875 Ellicott St. The event, which will feature engineers, architects, scientists and government officials, will explore how the region can prepare for, fund and create infrastructure projects that are environmentally sound. Discussion during the forum will focus on land use, transportation, energy and housing, as well as how local communities can improve water quality, specifically as it relates to pollution caused by storm water runoff.

Among those scheduled to speak are Robert Shibley, dean of UB’s School of Architecture and Planning, and Jill Spisiak Jedlicka, executive director of Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper.

The event is currently at capacity and organizers have stopped accepting registrants.
