Project Description

NRDC’s Rooftops to Rivers

Washington, DC

The LID Center was the principal researcher and author of NRDC’s Rooftops to Rivers: Green Strategies for Controlling Stormwater and Combined Sewer Overflows. The policy report evaluated the state of urban stormwater control programs and how green infrastructure was being used successfully to reduce runoff and water pollution. The report serves as national policy guidance for developing green infrastructure programs and was a catalyst for initiating US EPA’s program and partnerships. The report is available here.
