Keeping green to reduce storm overflow
Every year, 27 billion gallons of raw sewage and polluted stormwater flows into New York City’s waterways via combined sewer overflows. Green infrastructure keeps stormwater out of the sewer system and is a way to manage stormwater onsite, creating a healthier watershed. Additional benefits include increased neighborhood green space, biodiversity restoration via the creation of additional habitat, natural filtration of pollutants, carbon sequestration, cleaner air, and cooler temperatures.
