Green Streets Clean Water – Public Meeting

Green Streets Community Meeting - 7/7/21

We’re going to improve the infrastructure in San Diego’s unincorporated communities. Can YOU help us shape the design? 

Green Streets are environmentally friendly cost-effective solutions to dealing with our region’s water runoff in dry and wet weather. They use natural processes to treat wet and dry weather runoff using natural systems located along the road while supporting our infrastructure.           RSVP TO OUR FIRST VIRTUAL MEETING

Some of the treatment systems include:

  • Tree wells: Trees that filter stormwater runoff through the root system
  • Dispersion areas: Open space ditches or basins, typically covered by rocks or mulch that slow and absorb stormwater runoff
  • Biofiltration basins: Landscaped ditches or basins that filter stormwater runoff through soil and plant root systems.
  • Permeable pavement: Pavement with small gaps allowing stormwater to pass into the ground below

The County of San Diego is introducing the Green Streets Clean Water program to evaluate over 1,190 miles of roads in unincorporated areas for green street project opportunities and they are looking for your input. JOIN US FOR OUR FIRST VIRTUAL MEETING

We are gathering community-specific input to help tailor the projects to local preferences, where feasible. TAKE THE SURVEY
