    Vermont’s top environmental officials said they want to help the state control water pollution by using what they are calling green infrastructure systems to reduce the amount of stormwater pollution. The systems being announced Wednesday at a conference in Burlington can include rain gardens, porous pavements, trees, and rainwater harvesting. The state will invest federal money to help communities further control stormwater, a persistent source of pollution that is hard to control.
