All around the region, stormwater runoff collects pollutants and litter from the streets and washes it into the watershed before delivering it to the bay. In an attempt to mitigate this, San Jose is developing its first Green Stormwater Infrastructure Plan, which promotes the use of soil, plants and other permeable surfaces to capture, treat, infiltrate and/or use stormwater runoff. Hear about the strategies for integrating this new plan into the city’s traditional storm drain infrastructure over the long term.
