The City of Philadelphia is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its ambitious 25-year Green City, Clean Waters plan. It was the first endeavor of its kind, as the City proposed a primarily nature-based approach to meet regulatory requirements associated with decreasing the amount of polluted water entering creeks and rivers in Philadelphia. The forward-looking Green City, Clean Waters reimagined stormwater management as a visible investment in public areas such as sidewalks, parkland, and vacant lots, as well as other spaces in neighborhoods across the City.
