It seems that (finally!) “green” infrastructure practices are hitting the mainstream. I first worked with these principles way back in graduate school at Georgia Tech. So, that is more than 20 years ago! With recent record droughts and floods, an urgency to improve our stormwater practices has accelerated. And with real estate development practices that seek to maximize profit and minimize expense, this is truly a win-win for municipalities, developers, the environment, and the end consumers – you and I.
The link to the ULI report provides more detailed information and case studies that you can use to implement and be more persuasive about the benefits of green stormwater management. Please bookmark it, or download as a reference. It is time to put these proven practices into place!
