The District is providing incentive partnership funding to increase green infrastructure implementation and innovation within its service area through the 2018 Green Infrastructure Partnership Program.  Green infrastructure projects are consistent with the District’s 2035 Vision and Strategic Objectives document that is the District’s long-range approach to eliminate sewer overflows, improve water quality, and incorporate an overall triple bottom-line sustainable approach to the way the District operates. 

The District’s interest in GI is to increase the implementation of innovative approaches to wet weather management that are cost-effective, sustainable, and environmentally friendly. GI management approaches and technologies infiltrate, evapotranspire, capture, and reuse stormwater to maintain, restore, or mimic natural hydrologies.
