Complete with decision tools and clear specifications, Milwaukee's manual may be among the most comprehensive.View Resource
Initiated to help develop strategies to reduce stormwater quantity and improve stormwater quality, the manual addresses both street and alley projects, as well as reconstruction and redevelopment initatives. A matrix format enables users to select green street strategies that can be implemented most effectively in various street settings. Typical green street strategies [bioretention, tree trenches, and porous pavements] are evaluated in terms of the utility in medians, terraces, and parking lanes. The manual includes examples of typical installation locations, benefits, and maintenance considerations, along with photos and cross_sectional renderings.
