EPA Launches New Green Infrastructure Website

EPA’s Office of Water recently announced the release of its new Green Infrastructure website to better communicate the “what, why, and how” of green infrastructure to municipalities, developers, and the general public. Green infrastructure uses vegetation, soils, and natural processes to manage water and create healthier urban environments. The new website is designed to be a one-stop shop for resources on green infrastructure that features improved navigability and up-to-date content.

The site offers a variety of publications and tools developed by EPA, state and local governments, the private sector, nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions. The new green infrastructure website emphasizes the multiple environmental, social, and economic benefits associated with green infrastructure. The new site also provides access to the latest research developed by EPA’s Office of Research and Development. You may visit the website at: http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/greeninfrastructure.
