EPA Provides $950,000 to Help 17 Communities Use Green Infrastructure to Improve Water Quality


EPA is providing $950,000 to help 17 communities expand the use of green infrastructure to improve water quality and benefit communities. The EPA funding is intended to increase incorporation of green infrastructure into stormwater management programs and will support work such as review of local development and stormwater policies, cost benefit assessments, and the development of design guidance. EPA is awarding the technical assistance across 16 states to communities ranging in type, size, and climate zone. Some communities-like Beaufort, South Carolina and Neosho, Missouri-are small towns in urban growth areas interested in preserving their high quality waters. Others, such as Camden, New Jersey and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, are large cities interested in adding green infrastructure into their redevelopment projects to restore degraded urban waters and help revitalize their communities.
