Green Stormwater Infrastructure Initiatives

What is Green Stormwater Infrastructure?

Green stormwater infrastructure, also called GSI, captures, absorbs, or stores rain and melting snow, taking on numerous shapes and sizes from 50-gallon rain barrels to rain gardens, trees, and porous pavers for parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks. You can see green roofs on buildings or bioswales along city streets. Join us to manage water where it falls on your property. 

By Managing Water Where it Falls with GSI, We Can: 

  • Help protect rivers and lakes from water pollution.
  • Keep it from becoming someone else's headache downstream.
  • Reduce the risk of localized street ponding/flooding
  • Alleviate stress on the City's stormwater conveyance system
