Using Rainwater to Grow Livable Communities

A recently completed Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) project has developed a new website to facilitate the integration of stormwater BMPs into development projects. The website is public-friendly and can be used by municipalities and others to educate and inform constituents and stakeholders about sustainable stormwater practices. Learn about Kansas City’s “10,000 rain gardens” initiative, Chicago’s green roofs program, or how Philadelphia is converting vacant land covered with trash and debris into valuable assets that offer stormwater management benefits. Information from these and other case studies, as well as tools that can be used for effective communication on sustainable stormwater BMPs, is available at www.werf.org/livablecommunities.
