Green Infrastructure

Green Infrastructure, also known as Natural Infrastructure, are projects that utilize natural systems such as forests, floodplains, and soils to contribute to clean, reliable water supply and protect against floods and drought. In many circumstances, combining this “green infrastructure” with traditional “gray infrastructure,” such as dams, levees, reservoirs, treatment systems, and pipes, can provide next generation solutions that enhance system performance and better protect communities.
