Green Infrastructure Scale

Green infrastructure is a broad term that encompasses many features and tools. These infrastructure features range from site-specific and scale up to region-wide projects. When properly planned and executed, these features work in concert to system that reduces negative environmental impacts associated with urban development.

Site-Scale Features

Site-specific features work to address impacts in localized areas like streets, sidewalks, courtyards and buildings. Green roofs, rain gardens and rain barrels mitigate the impacts of storm water by slowing the rate of run off through retention. More advanced features include onsite waste water treatment through biological processes.
