Compliance & Water QualityAir Quality ImprovementsRecreation & AestheticsFlood MitigationHeat Island MitigationKPIs include reduced pollutant levels, compliance with water quality standards, increased DO levels, reduced nutrient loading, reduced turbidity, and enhanced health and diversity of aquatic ecosystems.KPIs include reduced concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5), compliance with air quality standards, visibility improvements, reduced respiratory illnesses, and public perception/satisfaction.KPIs include reduced air and noise pollution, increased biodiversity, more recreational opportunities, accessibility and availability, and economic benefits such as increased property values and job creation.KPIs include reduced flood frequency and duration, reduced peak flow and total volume, improved drainage efficiency, retention and detention performance, water quality improvements, and risk avoidance.KPIs include reduced ambient temperature, increase in green space coverage, reduced energy consumption, decreased heat-related health incidents, and progress in implementing green roofs and cool pavements.
