The mission of Water Wise Gulf South is to empower individuals, neighborhoods, and marginalized communities to manage stormwater, thereby reducing localized flooding and providing many other benefits. We promote community-driven, ecologically-based solutions, known as green infrastructure, to infiltrate, filter, and detain stormwater runoff and improve water quality.
Our approach is to build community leadership and demonstrate green infrastructure systems. We accomplish this by providing technical assistance, educational programming, green infrastructure leadership training, and green infrastructure implementation.
