You are invited to our Residential Stormwater Workshop & Planning Update! The event will be held Wednesday evening, April 26, 2017 in South Milwaukee and will include a brief informational update on the Oak Creek Plan from Laura Kletti Herrick P.E., CFM and Thomas M. Slawski, Ph.D. of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission. Topics of their presentation will include a short summary of the stakeholder comments received at the August 2016 planning meeting and presentation of some of the field data collected to date.
The main portion of the event will be a resident workshop focusing on what citizens can do on their properties to improve and reduce stormwater runoff. Offered as part of the Respect Our Waters program, this workshop applies to all residents of southeastern Wisconsin. Learn actions you can take in your own yard to help protect our precious waters. You’ll glean new information, get your questions answered and go home with great guides on eco-friendly spring and summer yard care, lawn alternatives, rain gardens, rain barrels, composting, permeable surfaces, management of yard waste and pet waste and more.
Refreshments will be served and registration is required. There is no cost to attend.
