3 Rivers Wet Weather and the North Area Environmental Council invite residents to a workshop to learn about steps they can take to improve the water quality of their local streams.  Even small residential lots can be a part of the solution by better management of stormwater runoff. 

Presentations by StormWorks and the Allegheny County Conservation District will include:

  •  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, etc. will be on hand to answer your questions. 


 Call 3 Rivers Wet Weather (412) 578-8375 or email Info@3rww.org.
