GSI Precedent Library:
Available Online Now!

One of the ways SBN, via the Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Partners, is addressing the need for more information on the degree to which GSI performs is through the development of a GSI Precedent Library. The Library was developed in partnership with The Delaware Valley Green Building Council with support from a strong consultant team including Meliora Design, Andropogon Associates, and Roofmeadow. The GSI Precedent Library features a collection of case studies of highly effective GSI projects from across the country that demonstrates the dynamic performance capacity of best management practices. The case studies are complemented by peer-reviewed research that further defends the environmental, social, and economic benefits of green stormwater infrastructure.
