Scaling Green Infrastructure

Presented Thursday, May 31st, 2018



Green infrastructure technologies have improved urban stormwater management and water quality across the country. However, despite these and other community benefits, green infrastructure has not found widespread inclusion in municipal capital improvement programs. What kinds of policies and practices are needed to embed green infrastructure techniques into capital improvement decision-making? What does good green infrastructure program design look like? In the 4th webinar of its series, CNT invited Onondaga County’s Save the Rain initiative and the city of Grand Rapids to share the work they’re doing to scale the implementation of green infrastructure.
