Communities are looking to green infrastructure as a means of meeting not only stormwater management objectives, but multiple environmental, social, and economic goals. This report includes a discussion of low impact development, green infrastructure, and the materials available to guide officials, regulators, and managers. It includes information gathered from a Clean Water America Alliance (CWAA) Urban Water Sustainability Council (UWSC) meeting and provides the perspectives of the challenges faced by six municipalities on the forefront of implementing green infrastructure for wet weather management. The report reviews the criteria, metrics, and protocols being used to measure integrated systems. Published by WERF. 38 pages. Online PDF. (2012)
