9,000 Raingardens for New York

New York Sets a Goal for another 5,000 New Curbside Rain Gardens, in addition to the 4,000 already installed, bringing the total for the City to 9,000.

Seventy percent of the surface of New York City is impervious, this program will put a significant dent in the hard landscape.

“We are deploying all of the resources at our disposal to tackle the challenge of global warming head-on,” said Mayor de Blasio. “We are doubling the size of the largest green infrastructure program in the country, creating green oases in our neighborhoods and protecting our waterways for all New Yorkers to enjoy.”
