EPA Signs MOU to Advance LID, Green Infrastructure
EPA and the NAFSMA commit to using various approaches to improve water quality
On Feb. 5, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Association of Flood and Stormwater Management Agencies signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that outlined how the two organizations could work together to advance the implementation of low impact development (LID) and green infrastructure. LID and green infrastructure are two techniques, among many, that can build more resilient and sustainable communities. The MOU includes commitments from both organizations to collaborate on encouraging and supporting the use of various approaches to help promote resiliency and assist in improving water quality, and to share available data establishing low-impact development and green infrastructure operation and maintenance costs in various environments, ecological features and climates.
