Green infrastructure is an emerging engineering approach used to address stormwater and water quality challenges in urban areas using cost-effective technologies, which also provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.
Despite the growing interest in green infrastructure for stormwater management, information is limited on its design, implementation, operation and performance.
The limited information available indicates that there are substantial differences in function and performance among different green infrastructure designs.
The purpose of this report is to evaluate and begin to address green infrastructure information needs. This report is intended to help researchers identify and overcome information gaps, and as a resource for managers determining the most appropriate green infrastructure designs for their landscape and climate.
