Community Input For Green Stormwater Infrastructure

Step 1 of 5: Project Criteria

Physical Criteria

  • Each green infrastructure site must contain at least one stormwater inlet (either on the street or within the site).
  • PWD prioritizes projects located within the Combined Sewer System.

Project Requirements

  • Projects must focus on the development of green infrastructure for stormwater management purposes.
  • Only projects at schools, parks, recreation centers, parking lots, public spaces (vacant lots, community gardens and parks, traffic triangles, vacated streets and others) and public corridors will be considered.
  • Only projects on land owned by the City of Philadelphia or the Philadelphia School District (with the exception of vacant lots and community gardens) will be considered.
  • Projects outside of the City of Philadelphia will not be considered.

Project Selection Priorities

  • Submitters are encouraged, but not required, to be affiliated with a community organization, civic group, non-profit, school, recreation center, business district, elected official’s office or other organization or institution.
  • Projects that have developed community or institutional partnerships and/or have undergone a community-based planning process are prioritized by PWD.
  • All projects must, if selected, conduct community outreach and engagement.
