Stormwater - Philadelphia is Doing It Right

"Philadelphia's $2 billion plan to manage its storm water with green methods - porous pavement, green roofs, and a plethora of trees - got the official nod Tuesday from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. (The) agreement for a 25-year plan that has been described as one of the most innovative and ambitious in the nation. It will transform not only how the city handles storm water - treating it as a resource instead of a waste product - but also how the city looks." - excerpts from article at More about the benefits of Green Infrastructure.
