Marinette County, recently hit hard with PFAS pollution and high lake levels,  is working to increase awareness of the benefits of green infrastructure through the creation of a publicly-accessible green roof on the Marinette County Courthouse and Resource Center and the installation of pervious asphalt in the adjacent parking lot. This green infrastructure project is one component of a larger effort to improve the efficiency of County operations and increase resilience to extreme weather events while promoting green building practices in the region.
