Green Infrastructure

Green infrastructure or Low Impact Development (GI/LID) is a cost-effective, resilient approach to managing wet weather impacts that provides many community benefits. While single-purpose gray stormwater infrastructure—conventional piped drainage and water treatment systems—is designed to move urban stormwater away from the built environment, green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits. GI/LID projects are eligible for nonpoint source funding.
