3 Rivers Wet Weather and the North Area Environmental Council will host a Better Backyards for Healthy Streams Workshop on May 15 starting at 2:00 in the Ross Community Center, 1000 Ross Municipal Drive in Pittsburgh.
The workshop will help residents learn about steps they can take to improve water quality in their local streams to provide better management of stormwater runoff.
-- How hard surfaces such as roofs and driveways affect stormwater;
-- What to consider when choosing stormwater best management practices for your property;
-- A menu of options to manage stormwater and the maintenance required; and
-- Healthy lawn care practices to reduce polluted runoff.
Local vendors that provide installation and maintenance of rain gardens, rain barrels and more will be on hand to answer your questions.
