Title:
Maplewood, Minnesota: Living Streets Policy and Sustainability Efforts

Abstract:
The City of Maplewood, MN elected to incorporate alternatives to storm sewers when implementing improvements to residential areas. It was one of the first cities in MN to begin installing rain gardens to manage storm water runoff. In addition to enhancing water quality by holding and allowing storm water to infiltrate into the ground instead of carrying sediments and urban pollutants to regional lakes, the gardens attract a wider variety of birds and butterflies. This website highlights Maplewood's sustainability efforts.
