Harvesting the Value of Water explores the real estate sector’s increased participation in stormwater management through the incorporation of green infrastructure and other water management mechanisms. Highlighting a series of case studies, the report explores how stormwater management can introduce operational efficiencies, improve building user experience, enhance aesthetics, and otherwise differentiate a real estate project.

Cities across the United States are dramatically revising their stormwater management regulations in response to aging infrastructure, combined sewer overflows, and flood frequency, among other challenges. In many cases, new regulations propose increased participation in stormwater management from the private sector, requiring or incentivizing the incorporation of green infrastructure.

Harvesting the Value of Water explores this changing policy landscape and how the real estate industry is responding. Learn more about these trends and value-generating opportunities in this report
