Green Infrastructure


Green infrastructure is a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to traditional piped drainage and water treatment systems that were designed to haul stormwater away from urban environments. As stormwater flows over land, it picks up litter, bacteria, chemicals, sand and other debris and carries these pollutants into our lakes, ponds, rivers, streams, wetlands and oceans. Most stormwater drains flow directly into the nearest body of water, usually with little or no treatment. Higher stormwater runoff flows can also result in erosion and flooding which in turn will damage the local ecosystem, property, and infrastructure. Green infrastructure is a low-impact solution to manage the quality and quantity of stormwater at its source while also delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits.

Who Uses It:

Anyone from homeowners to municipalities, from contractors to engineers, and even landscapers utilize Green Infrastructure. By implementing Green Infrastructure elements at your home, place of business, or on your next project, you can help keep our waterways clean for wildlife habitat, recreation, navigation, and consumption.
