Get The Dirt on Stormwater-Live, Free Webcast! Sept 19 Noon-2pm Pine Bush Discovery Center

Produced by the Center for Watershed Protection (CWP) and purchased by the Stormwater Coalition of Albany County as part of their public education and outreach program, this is one of a series of free webcasts taking place at various venues in Albany County. For more information about this webcast series, see flyer.

Here’s what CWP has to say about this webcast:

“Recently, stormwater management has become dirty business, meaning that the dirt has a lot to do with the effectiveness of stormwater practices. There have been many innovations in the field of structural soils, soil amendments, and sophisticated soil mixes for bioretention—all for the purpose of enhancing stormwater treatment systems and/or targeting particular pollutants. This webcast will give you the dirt on the soil revolution and provide many practical design tips and resources.”
