Optimizing Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development to Mitigate Impacts on Freshwater Systems
Funded in 2021 by NOAA through the National Sea Grant Office, this project Optimizing Green Infrastructures and Low Impact Developments to Mitigate Runoff and Pollution Impacts on Freshwater Systems, aims to optimize the deployment of innovative green infrastructure/low-impact development (GI/LID) techniques to maximize their environmental, economic, and social benefits through research and catalyzed collaboration between the Sea Grant Network and other agencies to mitigate runoff and pollution impacts on freshwater systems eventually protecting coastal ecosystems in the U.S.
