The use of green infrastructure to control stormwater runoff is becoming more widespread in many communities. The incorporation of requirements to implement green infrastructure as part of NPDES permits to control combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and stormwater discharges is becoming more common-place, but is likely to actually be required nationally in some form under EPA's new Stormwater Rule (expected in 2012). This paper describes the benefits of green infrastructure, examines challenges, and provides examples of how incorporation into permits is beginning to take shape.
