Cost-effective and a resilient approach to managing stormwater, Green Infrastructure provides many community benefits. Not only does it reduce and treat stormwater at its source, these products deliver environmental, social and economic benefits.
A major cause of pollution in urban areas is stormwater runoff. When rain collects on our roofs, parking lots and streets, water runs into sewers and is carried to nearby bodies of water. Without proper Green Infrastructure products, this water will carry pollutants into lakes and streams and heavy rains can also cause erosion and flooding, damaging property.
