Stormwater Management Workshop

February 27, 2013 @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm

8361066979_ae8f93d276

A rainy day in New York can be clean and refresh­ing or cold and mis­er­able, but for­tu­nate­ly, we stay dry using rain­coats, boots, and umbrel­las. The city, on the oth­er hand, has to deal with all that water, the prod­ucts of which include pol­lut­ing run-off and sewage over­flows.

Lenny Lib­rizzi, the Assis­tant Direc­tor of GrowNYC’s Open Space Green­ing pro­gram, will be hold­ing a series of work­shops on Stormwa­ter Man­age­ment, host­ed at the Brook­lyn Botan­i­c Gar­den in the Wat­son Edu­ca­tion Build­ing. This pre­sen­ta­tion is geared to both com­mu­nity gar­den­ers and homeowners–everyone is wel­come!

Learn about “rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing, swales, rain gar­dens, enhanced tree pits, per­me­able paving, and more,” with the goal of pre­serv­ing water and pre­vent­ing run-off. Please note that reg­is­tra­tion is required: enroll here.
