New Pilot Program!
We launched a Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Visual Monitoring pilot program to track how GSI projects grow and transform over time. Help us monitor GSI by using one of the phone stands to snap a photo, and then sharing it with us!
Green stormwater infrastructure benefits land development. You can:
- Use natural and built landscape features to capture and soak up rainwater.
- Reduce water pollution that would otherwise go to storm drains and streams.
Properties and roads with these features have a lower impact on land and they are good for the environment. See more information
Advancing use of green stormwater infrastructure (Plan approved in July 2021)
There are several City of Raleigh road projects that include bioretention areas. These areas manage the flow of stormwater and remove water pollution coming from a road before it reaches storm drains and streams.
- Fox Road
- Sandy Forks Road
- Yonkers Road

Projects at Parks
We're partnering with NC State to install green stormwater infrastructure at Biltmore Hills Park. Learn more about this project.
Go Above & Beyond
You can add these features to your property beyond what's required for development. Learn about Raleigh Rainwater Rewards. We'll reimburse you for projects done at your home or business.
