Green Infrastructure

Green Infrastructure describes a set of practices and design principles that uses natural processes to manage the effects of urbanization on water.  The 2017 Vermont Stormwater Management Manual Rule and Design Guidance has been updated to incorporate more green infrastructure stormwater treatment practices into the treatment standards and design requireents for projects that require a state issued operational stormwater permit. 

The Clean Water Initiative Program Green Infrastructure Page also contains resources for non-regulated sites and municipalities wishing to develop their own green infrastructure ordinances.
