Green Stormwater Infrastructure Decision Tree

Planning tool developed for organizations (i.e., communities, utility organizations, transit agencies) seeking to implement a Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) program on contaminated or potentially contaminated sites (brownfields).  It is a tool for assessing risk and managing the unknowns associated with brownfield sites and is designed to be applied by entities that are implementing or intend to implement a larger scale program consisting of numerous sites.  To view the How-To Video that explains how to use the Green Stormwater Infrastructure Decision Tree, please go to the following LINK.
 

Naturally Resilient Communities Tool

Developed by the Nature Conservancy, in partnership with the American Planning Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, National Association of Counties, and the Association of State Floodplain Managers, this tool prompts users to select a hazard that their city faces, with options ranging from coastal erosion to storm water flooding. Once a "hazard" is selected, a menu pops up listing relevant mitigation efforts around natural infrastructure, such as green streets that reduce the flow of stormwater and wetland habitats that combat flooding as applied in various case studies.
