Take the Water Department survey on green streets

A message from the Next Great City newsletter:

The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) would like to green our neighborhoods to better manage stormwater (rain or melting snow) runoff before it enters storm drains. This would consequently improve our quality of life by imroving water quality, making neighborhoods cooler in the summer and increasing home values.
The Philadelphia Water Department, Office of Watersheds would appreciate you giving them your feedback on green streets by taking a short survey.

Thank you for taking this survey! If you would like to learn more about Philadelphia’s waterways and watersheds, visit
