About This Map:
Potential green infrastructure project sites published here were estimating[sic] using planning-level siting criteria applied discretely to each parcel in the City of Pittsburgh. These criteria are summarized in the documentation link provided below. Cost effectiveness (in units of gallons of inflow reduced per installed cost) is estimated by performing a hydrologic simulation of each discrete installation for each parcel. It is important to emphasize that hydrologic simulations were done at the parcel scale.
Select model input and output are published in the Supplemental Information at the link below.
Please note that the estimates published here are intended for planning level applications. Site specific conditions will influence the ultimate efficacy of any green infrastructure category. Limitations are further discussed in the documentation at the link below.
