The Nature of Green Infrastructure
Vegetated Water Quality Facilities (VWQF)
Online Management Training
Clean Water Services now has an online training opportunity for managing vegetated water quality facilities. The training provides guidance on how to inspect and manage long-term maintenance of the facilities and for those landscape maintenance contractors who are interested, they will earn their place on Clean Water Services’ Vegetated Water Quality Management (VWQF) Preferred Contractor list. The Nature of Green Infrastructure online lets learners earn their place on the list at their own pace, and on their own schedule, while they observe social distancing.
The Nature of Green Infrastructure offers a variety of benefits:
- Stay up to date on the latest practices for managing vegetated water quality facilities and stay on the Preferred Contractors list.
- Save money with properly maintained VWQF verses rehabilitating a facility left in poor condition.
- Reduce the workload for your staff and for agency inspectors, creating efficiency in the compliance process.
- Get a clear understanding of how to efficiently and successfully manage VWQFs.
Please share this course with anyone who is interested in expanding their knowledge of VWQF management. They can get started by creating an account on the Clean Water Learning online portal and purchasing The Nature of Green Infrastructure online course.

Landscape maintenance contractors who pass the final test with a score of at least 70%, can be placed on Clean Water Services’ Preferred Contractor list.
