Everyone can help protect water quality!

We all live in a watershed and everyone can help protect water quality. Join us for a Zoom presentation about the basic concepts of protecting water in our towns and on your property, regardless of size or how close you are to a body of water.

We will start off with some broad concepts such as infiltration and run-off, and then talk more specifically about impervious surfaces, driveway and road impacts, septic system considerations, and lawn and garden management.

We’ll also touch on shoreline regulations, best practices for buffer areas along drainage areas and water-ways, and threats to water quality such as invasive aquatic species.

This program is for homeowners, conservation committee members, municipal officials engaged in comprehensive planning processes, and anyone interested in protecting water quality.
