The public is invited to attend a free stormwater webinar from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Thursday, June 18. Topics covered include drainage in Delaware, preventative maintenance, irrigation and water management.
This is the third event in a four-part stormwater workshop series presented by the Sussex Conservation District, University of Delaware Cooperative Extension and Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.
“We encourage communities and property owners to become informed so they can identify problems early, before they become costly to repair,” said Jessica Watson, sediment and stormwater program manager at the conservation district.
“If you are new to Delaware, we want you to learn how your actions on private land, at home and in community open space affect water quality for all in Sussex County,” said Tracy Wootten, horticulture agent at the cooperative extension.
Registered attendees will receive the webinar registration link one day prior to the event and will be entered for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate for native plants from the conservation district nursery.
Two Delaware nutrient management credits are offered. The final workshop of the series is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 13.
