DEP Green infrastructure meeting

The DEP held a “Green infrastructure” meeting last thursday, which I attended. The concept of the green infrastructure program is to find ways to reduce CSO outfalls by developing alternates to traditional infrastructure. These green initiatives include green roofs, bioswales, and enhanced tree pits to help reduce storm water run-off. There is even a grant program for people to develop these ideas with funding from the DEP, unfortunately the applications are due on the 29th of april. I spoke with several people about my project and got some ideas about how to proceed.
