Will green infrastructure help me qualify for LEED certification?


Yes. The LEED rating system offers up to four points toward certification for managing rainwater on site. Points are awarded based on the percentile of regional or local rainfall events that are managed using green infrastructure. For example, managing rainfall in the 80th percentile is worth one point, while the 95th percentile is worth four points. It is calculated using a comparative analysis of daily rainfall data.
