Soak Up More Stormwater: Partnering with Businesses & Homeowners

Thursday, September 30, 2021

This free virtual event focuses on how everyone can have a role in managing rainwater and reducing flooding. Opportunities to manage stormwater effectively and aesthetically increase when municipalities, homeowners, and businesses work together. This informative event will highlight successful projects and programs where municipalities and environmental groups have collaborated with and incentivized individual property owners (residents, institutions, businesses) to retrofit properties. We'll also revisit MCPC's "Sustainable Green Parking Lots" guidebook and recently adopted ordinance language that strengthens and encourages private investment in green stormwater infrastructure. Learn about these topics and hear about successful projects and programs in our area and the region!


The event is being offered as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2021, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the "Sustainable Places" theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County’s comprehensive plan.
