What is Green Infrastructure?
Green infrastructure involves a variety of water management practices, such as, roadside plantings, absorbent gardens, and other measures that capture, filter, and reduce stormwater.

In doing so, it cuts down on the amount of flooding and reduces the polluted runoff that reaches sewers, streams, rivers, and lakes throughout the community.

Green infrastructure captures the rain where it falls. It mirrors natural hydrological processes and uses natural elements such as soil and plants to turn rainfall into a resource instead of a waste. It also increases the quality and quantity of local water supplies and provides other environmental, economic, and health benefits.
Mandatory 10-Digit Dialing Effective October 2021
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) designated 988 as the new, nationwide, 3-digit phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

This designation requires all phone service providers to direct all 988 calls to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by July 16, 2022.

To ensure all 988 calls reach the Lifeline, all covered providers are required to implement 10-digit dialing in areas that use 988 as the first three numbers in the seven-digit phone numbers.
