Green Infrastructure Overview

As green technology and the importance of water conservation increases, some utilities have adopted rebate programs for customers investing in green infrastructure for their homes or businesses. However, before rebates are paid, the existence of this infrastructure needs to be verified from the field. The Green Infrastructure solution allows field crews to perform scheduled or ad hoc verifications on a smartphone or tablet with the Collector for ArcGIS application.


Green Infrastructure requires specific technical experience and software.
