ILFI's Brad Liljequist will lead a redefining water use+waste workshop @NESEA_org 's #BE16 Conference in Boston.

The Living Building Challenge Water Petal is intended to showcase a new age of design, where water is used as a resource, and nothing is left to waste. This workshop will take a look at the components of the Living Building Challenge, with a deep focus on the requirements of the Water Petal. Participants will develop an understanding of why water is such a critical issue in the built environment and the positive impact professionals can have. The forum will include Institute and project team presentations on techniques, strategies and technologies for achieving net positive water. This workshop will also include a discussion of issues and solutions related to water policy and what is needed next to make it easier for project teams and policy makers alike to support integrated water management.
