Stormwater Management Workshop

February 27, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 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.
