Philadelphia Water Dept PROMO: Green City program

This promo for the Philadelphia Water Department's "Green City, Clean Waters" initiative outlines how the City of Philadelphia aims to meet the EPA mandate of pollution reduction in the rivers - the Schuylkill and the Delaware - by installing green infrastructures that mimic how nature handles stormwater - by holding it, filtering it and slowly releasing into the general flow of rivers and streams. These green solutions for an urban environment include stream bank buffers, rain barrels, stormwater planters, rain gardens, tree trenches, green roofs and porous paving, instead of building storage tanks and adding more pipes to an already over-burdened system.
