What is BLUE®?

It is much less expensive and easier to prevent polluted waters than clean them up.

BLUE® is an innovative program that certifies homes, businesses and institutions as watershed friendly. Evaluators educate and collaborate with property owners to identify opportunities for stormwater mitigation, affect behavioral changes, and establish stewardship principles to protect our waters from harmful algae blooms. 

What Is Green Stormwater Infrastructure?

Green Stormwater Infrastructure utilizes infiltration, evapotranspiration, redirection, storage and reuse - to reduce combined sewage overflows and water quality impacts of the built environment.

GSI installations can include rain gardens, berms, swales, drywells, permeable paving, infiltration systems, water bars/trenches, gutter systems, rain barrels and more.
