Resources and Techniques for Street Runoff Infiltration

New techniques for managing street runoff are becoming reality throughout the world.  Termed "Green Infrastructure," installations including rain gardens, bioswales, porous pavement and other techniques are working to reduce water pollution in lakes and streams.  These pages are meant to serve as a starting point for gathering information on applications of green infrastructure for municipalities and companies that are interested in implementing them.
