Toledo Votes for Green Infrastructure Solutions

The Toledo, Ohio, City Council recently voted to allow the use of green infrastructure solutions in projects located within the city, including pervious pavement for required off-street parking and parking lots and natural water filtration with native plants (rain gardens) in parking lot islands.

Katie Swartz, conservation associate from American Rivers, said, "Our nation is at a transformational moment when it comes to our rivers and clean water. Other cities should follow Toledo's lead and embrace a 21st century approach to water that integrates green solutions. Green infrastructure projects around our community will manage stormwater wisely and help keep our water supply clean, protecting public health and the recreational areas we all enjoy for boating, swimming, and fishing,"
