Showcasing a case study:

Southeast Atlanta Green Infrastructure Initiative

Phase 3 is in progress and will convert a block of residential housing into a park with ponds. The first 2 phases are complete and accomplished about half of the project's goal in reducing flooding. The first two phases replaced some pavement with vegetated bioswales, converted some parking spaces into rain gardens, and replaced six miles of streets with permeable pavers. These retrofit fixes are aesthetically pleasing, improve property values, build community, and get water into the ground.
