Muhammad, as well as researchers who work on stormwater problems, said that if planners take a broad perspective — Green Infrastructure and Public Health issues like disparities in housing — green infrastructure holds promise for residents who face the greatest environmental burdens.
This post explores the public health benefits of green infrastructure and uses the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY as an example of how this type of infrastructure can be implemented to benefit communities.
