GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE

SOUTH CAROLINA

UPGIS developed two green infrastructure plans, one for Anderson County, SC and another for the Santee-Lynches Regional Council of Governments in South Carolina.  Green infrastructure networks are critical for healthy environments and access to breathable air, clean drinking water, and rich agricultural soils. In addition to health benefits, green infrastructure provides social and emotional benefits. The plans that UPGIS developed were both utilized by planning staff to integrate green infrastructure priorities into their master planning processes.
