A Homeowner's Guide to Stormwater
When: July 30, 2014, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Kristen Kyler, the Project Coordinator of the Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center’s Lower Susquehanna Initiative, discusses why homeowner’s need to manage stormwater and how the “Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater” is meant to be used.
The Homeowner's Guide to Stormwater is a guide that was developed by the Little Conestoga Partnership, a partnership funded by a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant that is using an innovative, watershed based approach to reduce stormwater pollution.
Penn State, as a partner in this project, helped develop the Homeowner's Guide to Stormwater, which focuses on 6 basic practices:
- rain gardens
- rain barrels
- riparian buffers
- tree plantings
- native meadows
- pervious pavers
