Duluth Green Infrastructure
Green infrastructure, infrastructure that can store and slow down rainwater, protects our community by reducing flood risk. But it also creates wildlife habitat, increases urban shading, and makes our community more beautiful. Whether it is rain gardens, green roofs, pollinator habitat, or plantings, green infrastructure can also lower greenhouse gas emissions by acting as carbon sinks and reducing the need for air conditioning.
The City of Duluth’s stormwater engineers, utility program coordinators, and sustainability staff have been working together on a project to identify potential sites to install green infrastructure on over 17-million square feet of city-owned land. Learn more about this effort from the link below.
