Acres of land planned to treat with green infrastructure for stormwater management (state-level)

At the state level, this metric indicates the total number of acres of land for which municipalities plan to treat runoff with green infrastructure, according to the goal in the Master Plans or self-reported survey results. It is a best practice for towns to include green infrastructure in their master plans. Green infrastructure manages stormwater runoff in a way that reduces flood risk, improves water quality, and increases groundwater recharge. Having a target is a good first step for municipalities to make green infrastructure their go-to solution.

*There is no value for this metric yet due to insufficient data. Please see the corresponding system-level metric for the data that has been collected thus far.
