Stormwater Infrastructure Matters (SWIM)

SWIM is a coalition of 70+ organizations citywide who are dedicated to ensuring swimmable,fishable waters around New York City through natural, sustainable stormwater management practices in our neighborhoods. This approach is environmentally and fiscally responsible because it utilizes stormwater - currently viewed as waste - as a resource.
