Green stormwater infrastructure (GI) treats stormwater as a resource and strives to restore the natural hydrologic cycle in developed areas. Evaluating GI and its ability to maximize multiple benefits on projects is a core element of Lotus’ philosophy and service offerings. Our expertise extends to all aspects of GI, including:

  • Developing policy and compliance tools

  • Creating citywide GI plans for major cities like San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle

  • Leading GI design, construction oversight, and performance monitoring.

Our GI design projects include bioretention, permeable pavement, creek daylighting, regional capture projects, and rainwater harvesting.
