Green infrastructure (GI) refers to a variety of stormwater management practices which utilize engineered vegetated systems
and materials to treat stormwater where it lands, mimicking natural processes. These technologies are utilized in wet
weather management programs throughout the United States to address combined sewer overflows, reduce flooding and
improve water quality.
WHAT IS GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE?
WHY GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE?
Unlike traditional “grey” infrastructure systems that are installed underground out of the public’s view, GI provides highly
visible, above ground community assets that can revitalize communities, promote public safety, and improve overall
quality of life. Like any infrastructure, GI requires maintenance to function as intended, which also creates local job
opportunities.
