New York Sets a Goal for 5,000 New Curbside Rain Gardens
"Mayor de Blasio has announced a major expansion of New York City’s Green Infrastructure Program," according to an article published by Real Estate Weekly.
The program sets a goal of building 5,000 curbside rain gardens, in addition to 4,000 already built in the city.
"This construction will bring a total of more than 9,000 curbside rain gardens to New York City, helping to prevent flooding and reduce Combined Sewer Overflows into local waterways by more than 500 million gallons each year, thereby further improving the health of New York Harbor and its tributaries," according to the article.
