Speaker Series—Slowing Down Stormwater

February 12, 2013, Brighton Memorial Library

When it rains, any water that falls on roads, parking lots, and other
impervious surfaces travels rapidly into storm sewers. This water often
picks up and transports surface pollutants into our waterways. The best way
to reduce this pollution is to slow down the stormwater so it can be
absorbed by vegetation. This can be accomplished through use of green
infrastructure such as rain gardens, rain barrels, porous pavement, or green
roofs. 

Mike Guyon from the Town of Brighton, and Todd Stevenson from the
Monroe County Stormwater Coalition will present information on  recent
stormwater regulations and actions taking place in Brighton to implement
green infrastructure along Monroe Avenue and in the Buckland Creek
watershed.
