The City of San José is hosting a public meeting on a new Green Stormwater Infrastructure Plan on Thursday, November 15, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Roosevelt Community Center, located at 901 E. Santa Clara St.

The City is eager to inform the community about the plan, which is slated for adoption in 2019. This plan will guide the City’s implementation of green stormwater infrastructure, which uses vegetation, soils and natural systems to manage water and create healthier urban environments.

Green stormwater infrastructure employs physical, biological and chemical processes to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff, protecting our waterways. Other community benefits of green stormwater infrastructure can include improved water and air quality, reduced flooding, increased water supply, enhanced wildlife habitat and traffic safety improvements.

Green stormwater infrastructure also supports the goals of Climate Smart San José, the City’s communitywide initiative to reduce air pollution, save water and improve quality of life.

If you have any questions about the meeting, please Aaron Kinney of the San José Environmental Services Department at aaron.kinney@sanjoseca.gov or 408-975-2561. For more information on green stormwater infrastructure, go to www.sjenvironment.org/greenstreets.
