Philadelphia is taking some pretty major steps to reduce water pollution and green its streets and public spaces: The city’s water department has signed an ambitious deal with state environmental officials to deploy a series of infrastructure innovations like green roofs, absorptive pavement, and expanded park space that will contain overflow and halt the spread of pollution. The plan will also have the distinct benefit of cleaning up Philadelphia’s water, and generally making the city a more pleasant place to live, as the above video attests. It’s being hailed as “the most comprehensive network of green infrastructure found in any U.S. city.”
