Sustainability

Green City, Clean Waters

By implementing green stormwater infrastructure projects such as rain gardens and stormwater planters, the City can reduce water pollution impacts while improving our essential natural resources and making our neighborhoods more beautiful.

Resource Recovery and Energy Production

The Philadelphia Water Department is generating and conserving energy to reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources and to diversify the City's bank of available energy sources.

Protecting Waterways

To complement Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters plan, PWD is also working to restore the city’s urban streams and keep them free from trash and debris.
