Stormwater Management Workshop

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


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 NYC botanical gardens 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: email bronxgreenup@nybg.org or call (718) 817-8026.
