As part of a commitment to make a visible difference in communities, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a new web-based tool that helps local officials and other community members consider the benefits and uses of green infrastructure. The Green Infrastructure Wizard, or GIWiz, responds to growing community interest in using green infrastructure as a means of addressing water quality and a range of other local goals. Users can navigate the self-guided format to find EPA tools and resources and learn the basics of green infrastructure, explore financing options, visualize and design rain gardens, and other types of green infrastructure, and develop relevant public education and outreach materials.
