Dear Stormwater Professional,
In this special report, we highlight several innovative green infrastructure stormwater projects, including rain gardens, green roofs, and large-scale multi-use projects. Several cities that have faced stiff penalties for combined sewer overflows (CSOs) are using green infrastructure to reduce the total amount of runoff.
With many CSO programs under consent decrees from their state, exploring innovative solutions to reducing stormwater runoff is not only smart, it’s necessary.
Existing stormwater systems are sometimes outdated, overtaxed, or designed to outdated codes. We’ve compiled this report to assist you in making smart green infrastucture decisions. By examining several projects over diverse parts of the country, you’ll be able to assess trends and techniques that consider various stakeholders in your stormwater projects.
There are a variety of ways to handle stormwater runoff with green infrastructure and many factors to consider when evaluating options, including:
- Bioretention gardens
- Determining the optimal plants for rain gardens
- Dealing with steep slopes in watersheds
- Improving usability of public spaces
- Green roofs
- Constructed wetlands
This report looks in detail at the solutions and benefits of green infrastructure projects.
- Discover how incentives have helped Nashville, TN, become a green roof leader.
