Check out our new report on Green Infrastructure in Karst Regions


American Rivers has a new report out, Using Green Infrastructure in Karst Regions.

The report demonstrates how green infrastructure can be successfully applied in areas with karst topography. Karst topography is made up of soluble bedrock that can easily erode when it comes in contact with water and can be found in areas including the Shenandoah Valley, parts of Texas, Florida, and the Great Lakes.

Green infrastructure techniques are an important alternative to traditional development because they provide green space and beautify communities while reducing flooding and stormwater pollution. Techniques range from streamside buffer zones to green roofs and rain gardens.

You can help by sharing the report with your local leaders, and together, we can move towards a more sustainable approach to water management.
