On January 27, 2016, Lee Huang, Kate Raman, and Daniel Miles of Econsult Solutions previewed some of the findings from ESI’s Economic Impact Report of Green City, Clean Waters on the City of Philadelphia at the quarterly meeting of the Sustainable Business Network’s Green Stormwater Infrastructure Partners consortium.

The presentation highlighted Green City, Clean Waters, an innovative response to federally established water quality requirements, as well as the impact of GSI projects on the Philadelphia area.

Huang explained that Green City, Clean Waters has resulted in nearly 500 public and private projects between 2006 and 2015. Raman added that these projects generate an annual economic impact of $57 million in Philadelphia, that after seeing the success of GCCW in Philadelphia, other major cities such as Washington D.C. are starting to emulate this approach.
