Green infrastructure (GI) refers to stormwater management practices which utilize engineered vegetated systems and materials to treat stormwater where it lands, mimicking natural processes. These technologies are utilized in wet weather management programs throughout the United States to address combined sewer overflows, reduce flooding and improve water quality. Unlike traditional “grey” infrastructure systems that are installed underground out of the public’s view, GI provides highly visible, above ground community assets that can revitalize communities, promote public safety, and improve overall quality of life. Like any infrastructure, GI requires maintenance to function as intended, and the maintenance of these assets provides opportunities for training and workforce development.
