Rain on the modern landscape picks up urban residue and dumps into our streams, lakes and bays. New development techniques like green roofs, rain gardens, and porous pavement can help protect water better and cost less than tradition techniques. This 3 hour seminar will show how changes to development patterns affect water quality, showcase Low Impact Development projects, and compare cost and effectiveness of storm water treatment.
This workshop is produced in collaboration with Maine NEMO, a program that focuses on the links between land use and water quality. This workshop is pre-approved for MELNA Continuing Education Credit, as well as 3 continuing education credits for Code Enforcement Officers.
