Urban Stormwater

Sam Newberg - Joe Urban's picture

A recent article in The Economist looks at efforts in New York City to mitigate stormwater runoff and flooding without relying entirely on pipes and tunnels. This is an excellent example of "green infrastructure," as a simple boulevard or curbside garden can help absorb runoff stright in to the soil while saving municipalities expensive infrastructure upgrades.

CNU's Government Affairs Platform actively promotes stormwater solutions that are compatible with high-density walkable communities, and The Economist illustrates but one example to emulate.
