Green Storm-water Infrastructure Draft Plan

Updated: May 21, 2019

The Green Storm-water Infrastructure (GSI) Draft Plan, once completed, will guide the City's implementation of GSI projects, which use vegetation, soils and natural systems to manage storm-water and create healthier urban environments. The Draft Plan is posted here. The public has until May 15th to provide input. 

GSI employs natural processes to slow and filter storm-water runoff, protecting our waterways. Other community benefits of GSI can include improved water and air quality, reduced flooding, increased water supply, enhanced wildlife habitat and traffic safety improvements. GSI also supports the goals of Climate Smart San José, the City's community-wide initiative to reduce air pollution, save water and improve quality of life.
