ASLA Pushes For Green Infrastructure

In an effort to improve communities nationwide, the American Society of Landscape Architects is campaigning for green infrastructure. At the core of the ASLA campaign is informing communities of the different techniques available to prevent untreated water runoff from entering natural water sources and also drinking water sources.

The ASLA advocates using natural water treatment solutions such as rain gardens and green roofs instead of solely relying on water treatment facilities and old piping. Using the term “green infrastructure” to define their campaign, the ASLA is moving forward with their design and planning initiatives to use natural systems to clean runoff water and to store the clean water appropriately.
