Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Stormwater causes all sorts of problems, from flooded properties to polluted waterways. As precipitation increases due to climate change, understanding the best practices for managing stormwater at the municipal and residential level is more critical than ever. Learn how you and your city can slow climate change, reduce pollution and flooding, help replenish our water reserves, and save energy and money.
