Past Events

SWIM Coalition Public Meeting

Date: 12/08/2022

Time: 4-6pm

Location: Zoom

The Stormwater Infrastructure Matters (SWIM) is a coalition dedicated to ensuring swimmable and fishable waters around New York City through natural, sustainable stormwater management practices – called green infrastructure – in our neighborhoods. This approach is environmentally and fiscally responsible because it utilizes stormwater, currently viewed as waste, as a resource.

SWIM Coalition member organizations endorse a truly sustainable view of watershed management, one that restores ecological systems, creates local economic opportunities and equitably distributes the benefits of green infrastructure (GI). Learn more about their work on their site here.
