Gray 2 Green (G2G): A decision support tool for transitioning to vegetation-based stormwater management

G2G is a suite of tools and resources that allows users to site potential stormwater BMPs, test BMP scenarios, and share their results.

Site potential BMPs:  Using nationally-available soil and land use data layers, this ArcGIS add-in allows users to identify the range of green infrastructure BMPs that are appropriate for their development/redevelopment project. Development plans can be uploaded or quickly replicated using the handing drawing features incorporated in the project toolbar.

Test BMP scenarios: After identifying which BMPs are suitable for the development/redevelopment site, the G2G Scenario Analysis Tool allows users to determine the impacts of various treatment options working alone or as part of a treatment train. Working from the source outward, users can see how their management decisions impact stormwater runoff volumes and quality.

Share results: The G2G siting tool generates an easy-to-share PDF report which allows the reader to select and deselect map output layers regardless of his/her GIS capabilities Similarly, the G2G Scenario Analysis tool a standard office spreadsheet program to allow the user to visualize the impacts of on-the-fly BMP changes.
