To achieve long term success in developing and “building” Green Infrastructure, it is necessary to implement it through town plans, storm water master plans and ultimately municipal regulations and programs. However, given the many challenges faced by Vermont municipalities it may take several years before this becomes the norm.

In the interim, therefore, the adoption of Green Infrastructure principles and techniques can be promoted through the efforts of volunteers and partner organizations. Here’s a listing by county of just some of the local and regional organizations that can engage with your citizens and businesses and teach them how to incorporate Green Stormwater Infrastructure Practices into their daily routines and provide technical assistance.
