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 Stormwater Management Program is currently working on an update to the Vermont Stormwater Management Manual that will incorporate more green infrastructure practices into the management standards for projects that require a state issued 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.
