Green Infrastructure Report Released

Oct. 30, 2014

EPA has released a new report, Enhancing Sustainable Communities with Green Infrastructure, to help communities develop a vision and a plan for green infrastructure that can transform their neighborhoods and bring multiple benefits. The report can be useful to local governments, water utilities, sewer districts, nonprofits, neighborhood groups, and others interested in innovative approaches to managing stormwater to reduce flooding and bring other environmental, public health, social, and economic benefits. Read the report.

Cleveland was the site of the 2014 Community Summit on Green Infrastructure the week of October 27. This event, which EPA co-sponsored, brought together representatives from communities that are implementing green infrastructure techniques to learn from each other. Summit attendees had the chance to see several great examples of green infrastructure projects, including the sewer district’s investments in the Kinsman neighborhood on Cleveland’s east side. Read more in this blog.
