3 Rivers Wet Weather and the North Area Environmental Council invite residents to a workshop to learn about steps they can take to improve the water quality of their local streams. Even small residential lots can be a part of the solution by better management of stormwater runoff.
Presentations by SotrmWorks and the Allegheny County Conservation District will include:
- how hard surfaces such as roofs and driveways affect stormwater
- what to consider when choosing stormwater best management practices for your property
- a menu of options to manage stormwater and the maintenance required
- healthy lawn care practices to reduce polluted runoff
Local vendors that provide installation and maintenance of rain gardens, rain barrels, etc. will be on hand to answer your questions.
