New Guidance: Designing Parks and Public Spaces with Green Infrastructure

The Jersey Water Works Green Infrastructure Committee has released recommendations for designing new parks and public spaces with green infrastructure to manage stormwater.

Green infrastructure features allow parks and public spaces to manage stormwater, control flooding, and improve water quality in ways that complement and can even enhance their other functions.  Green infrastructure features can be especially useful in flood-prone areas and in cities that need to reduce combined sewer overflows.
