Green Infrastructure Resources

Green Infrastructure is an approach to managing stormwater that either enables it to infiltrate to the ground where it falls or captures it for later reuse. There is a wealth of information about green infrastructure, but here are some resources we’d like to highlight to help you understand, fund, and/or implement it.

The Green Infrastructure Municipal Toolkit is an online, one-stop green infrastructure resource designed to help municipal leaders and advocates address the related problems of nuisance flooding and polluted waterways. It includes detailed information and a variety of tools that cities and towns can use to plan, implement, and sustain green infrastructure in public- and private-sector development projects.

The Developers’ Green Infrastructure Guide is designed to help developers answer basic questions about green infrastructure, including what it is, how it works, what are its costs and benefits, and why it makes good business sense. It includes case studies, side-by-side site plan comparisons and interactive decision-making tools.
