PWD’s Watersheds blog closes out the year with a list of 11 green missions accomplished in 2011, from innovative stormwater management projects and stream restorations to groundbreaking policy agreements and energy-generating solar arrays.
When it comes to spreading the word about Green City, Clean Waters—Philadelphia’s 25-year plan to protect and enhance our watersheds largely through green infrastructure—PWD had a lot of help in 2011. The innovative plan and the beginning of its implementation drew attention from many different corners of the media universe: print and online publications concerned with science, technology, finance, ecology, urban planning and straight-up news all weighed in.
A complete 2011 press roundup would be lengthy (not to mention immodest), but here are a handful of articles highlighting Green City, Clean Waters activities:
- “US Stormwater Programme Poised For Green Growth” Bloomberg New Energy Finance
- “Go With The Flow: PWD’s Green City, Clean Waters Program Gushes With Possibilities” Grid
- “Street Smarts” Time
- “The Philadelphia Story” On Earth
- “How Would the New Venice Island Water Basin Have Fared During Hurricane Irene?” Newsworks
