The Chicago Green Alley. An Action Guide to Create a Greener, Environmentally Sustainable Chicago. 2010.

Imagine if all of the alleys in Chicago were green alleys. Up to 80% of the rainwater falling on these surfaces throughout the year could pass through permeable paving back into the earth, thereby reducing localized ooding, recharging groundwater and saving taxpayer money that would otherwise be spent treating stormwater.
