Additional Information:

Green infrastructure stormwater management is widely promoted by state and federal agencies as the proper way to control, treat and reduce stormwater runoff and its associated problems. However, there are challenges to correctly designing, constructing and maintaining these "advanced stormwater management systems." These challenges often lead to failures or conditions that compromise the functionality of such BMPs, fostering a reluctance to adopt green infrastructure stormwater management techniques for either new development or redevelopment projects.
