Green infrastructure refers to stormwater management practices that mimic what happens in nature during and after heavy rainfalls. Elements of green infrastructure work to either capture stormwater so it can be reused, or offer it a place to seep into the ground gradually and feed plants instead of leaving it to flow over impermeable paved surfaces like roads and sidewalks and cause flooding or overwhelm sewer systems. Luckily, any neighborhood can do a lot to protect rivers, streams and drinking water sources.
