This report defines green infrastructure and identifies the most appropriate practices for the Los Angeles Region; discusses the multiple benefits of green infrastructure for water supply, water quality, other environmental benefits, and community livability; presents the results of a review of state and regional regulations, programs, policies, and plans; and describes a process to identify opportunities for and barriers to green infrastructure in local regulations because the implementation of green infrastructure practices is determined largely by local codes and ordinances.
