Many cities are implementing Green policies to improve the quality of life for their citizens, increase their competitiveness, increase public access to green space and trails, to reduce flooding, and to stay out of court with either EPA or environmental organizations. Christophe Tulou, Director of Washington DC’s Department of the Environment, will present on Mayor Adrian Fenty’s initiative to “green” Washington, DC. Mayor Fenty supported a substantial increase in stormwater fees in order to finance his initiative.   Mr. Tulou will speak at 1 pm on Friday, Sept 10 on the 2nd floor of Durham City Hall at 101 City Hall Plaza.  Mr. Tulou is the former Secretary of Delaware’s Department of Environment; and former consultant to the Pew Oceans Commission and Heinz Foundation. Mr. Tulou's presentation will begin the fall Duke-UNC-WRRI Water Allocation Research Seminar series.
