Green Infrastructure for Managing Storm Water: New Jersey’s New Rules
Green infrastructure can win a trifecta: managing heavy rain and snow, improving water supplies, and enhancing real estate development. The Department of Environmental Protection is issuing new rules for storm water management that mandate use of green infrastructure such as bioswales, rain gardens, pervious pavement, tree wells, etc. Learn about these elements of landscape architecture and how they enhance aesthetics, health, and safety from Marian Glenn, Summit Environmental Commissioner and President of the Trustees of the Rahway River Watershed Association.
