World Water Day Workshops

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. The h0liday celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.

In recognition of World Water Day 2022 and their commitment towards building sustainable communities, the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict partnered with Seattle 2030 District and RainWise to promote and support stormwater management projects in the Seattle area.

GSI workshop

In partnership with Seattle 2030 and RainWise, the EcoDistrict hosted green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) workshops to highlight incentives and opportunities for property developers and faith-based communities to install GSI in their new and existing projects. Each workshop provided property developers and faith-based communities with: 

  • An overview from the King County RainWise team about their program and site eligibility requirements

  • Case studies from other properties in Seattle that have invested in GSI

  • An outline of how properties can play an integral role in Puget Sound climate resilience through GSI

  • Strategies for building new (or enhancing existing) stormwater projects
