The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the rules for the 6th annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a design competition open to U.S. colleges and universities. EPA seeks to engage undergraduate and graduate students in designing innovative green infrastructure for storm water management to showcase the environmental, economic and social benefits of green infrastructure practices.
Storm water pollution is a problem that is growing in scope and magnitude. Communities need planners, designers, engineers, and other professionals to create resilient and affordable infrastructure solutions for storm water management. EPA’s Campus RainWorks Challenge invites the current generation of scholars to lend their creativity, knowledge and energy to become part of the solution. Registration opens on Sept. 1, 2017, and the deadline for entries is Dec. 15, 2017. Winners will be announced in Spring 2018.
