E – 1202 EPA Green Streets

Intended Audience: civil and environmental engineers concerned with stormwater runoff and resulting water pollution issues.



Roads present many opportunities for green infrastructure application. One principle of green infrastructure involves reducing and treating stormwater close to its source. Urban transportation right-of-ways integrated with green techniques are often called “green streets”. Green streets provide a source control for a main contributor of stormwater runoff and pollutant load. This course presents methods for using green-street designs to alleviate pollution from urban stormwater runoff.

This course is based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency document EPA-833-F08-009, “Managing Wet Weather with Green Infrastructure Municipal Handbook Green Streets,” by R. Lukes and C. Kloss, December, 2008.
