The Water Environment Federation (WEF) and DC Water announced that 46 individuals recently completed a new job program that provides training and certification in construction, inspection and maintenance of green infrastructure, a fast-growing approach to reduce stormwater pollution. More than 100 individuals in Baltimore, MD; Milwaukee, WI; Pittsburgh, PA and Washington, D.C. have now completed the training and earned certifications under the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program (NGICP) in 2017. Designed to meet international best-practice standards, the certification will promote a skilled green workforce, help streamline the process of connecting qualified talent to in-demand jobs, support community-based job creation in US cities and establish national standards for professionals seeking to work on green infrastructure projects.
