Vancouver, Rain City
"Vancouver City Council has voted to adopt the Rain City Strategy, which reimagines how the city manages stormwater using green infrastructure," reports Todd Westcott.
"The Rain City Strategy outlines a series of actions to improve water quality in the natural environment, increase the resilience to climate change, and enhance natural ecosystems in the city," adds Westcott.
The strategy comes with a $1.5 million capital investment plan, recommended by city staff, with support from a green infrastructure team.
