The Green Infrastructure Wizard (GIWiz) helps public officials and communities clean waterways by providing access to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) green infrastructure resources.

EPA’s Web portal provides information about the basics of green infrastructure, options for financing green infrastructure, and examples of how communities are using green infrastructure to revitalize neighborhoods and enhance land use. The portal also offers tools to help visualize and design rain gardens, permeable pavement installations, and other types of green infrastructure as well as tools to develop public education and outreach campaigns focused on green infrastructure, according to an EPA news release.

Green infrastructure includes a wide range of approaches, including rain gardens, which catch rain water for plants instead of letting it run off into storm drains.

GIWiz was created as an interactive online portal to simplify the process of exploring all the information EPA provides on the topic. Learn about green infrastructure approaches that can help transform communities in the EPA report, Enhancing Sustainable Communities with Green Infrastructure.
