Green Infrastructure Calculator
"The Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) developed the Green Infrastructure Calculator to allow planners, engineers and other municipal staff to understand the underlying economics of various water-related interventions. The tool calculates the cost over time of a range of "green" interventions--like rain gardens, native landscaping and drainage swales--that could be used to replace or supplement other conventional, less environmentally-friendly engineered structures.
"Input a set of your own custom criteria for a lot or site--or use the default settings for a typical urban or suburban development--then let the Green Infrastructure Calculator do the rest." [from CNT-Update Digest, Vol 21, Issue 1]
