Green Infrastructure for Watershed Management

Stormwater is the fastest growing source of freshwater pollution in the world. During periods of strong rainfall, sewer systems can overflow, causing contaminated water to run into rivers and lakes. As hundreds of municipalities struggle to meet water quality goals, green infrastructure solutions such as rain gardens, bioswales and restored wetlands can offer cost savings and environmentally sustainable solutions. CPIC’s Green Infrastructure for Watershed Management Working Group aims to develop financial vehicles to attract private capital to these projects.

The working group is led by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). For more information, please send an email to greeninfrastructure@localhost.
