We work with local partners to achieve resilient communities where rain is valued as a resource.
Our Programs Help
Aging urban stormwater systems are proving inadequate to handle increased flows, creating a multi-billion dollar infrastructure deficit. By using free services of nature, we can manage rain more economically and help to address the deficit.
Reduce Flood Risk
Cleaning up after floods is even more expensive. Slowing down and soaking up water reduces stormwater flows and the financial, emotional, physical, and legal toll of flooding in your home and community.
Stay up to date on the latest green infrastructure news with the Umbrella Stormwater Bulletin. It’s free, monthly.
