Miami nonprofit turns to green infrastructure to tackle flooding and extreme heat

February 01, 2024. -- 

Miami Waterkeeper is seeking community input in its quest to make Miami-Dade County more environmentally resilient.

The nonprofit launched a new Green Infrastructure Accelerator Project to identify up to eight underutilized public spaces that could benefit from green infrastructure to reduce flooding, excessive heat and habitat loss. That could include anything from planting a row of trees along a city street to create a canopy for sun protection to installing rain barrels in urban areas to reduce stormwater runoff.
