NACTO Releases New 'Urban Stormwater Guide'
As many cities around the country experiment with green infrastructure, they have a new resource to guide their efforts with a new guidebook by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO).
Josh Cohen shares news of the new Urban Stormwater Guide, which "makes the case that green stormwater infrastructure can be combined with transportation infrastructure projects to help cities meet their stormwater management goals, save money and, in some cases, make streets safer for walking and biking." According to Cohen, the Urban Stormwater Guide is full of case studies from around the United States, and "provides a variety of green stormwater infrastructure designs for cities to implement, from major capital projects to low-cost neighborhood intersection treatments."
