The public is invited to attend a free stormwater webinar on Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020, from 10 a.m. to noon. Topics covered include stormwater emergency preparedness, algae control and invasive species identification and control.
This event is presented by the Sussex Conservation District (SCD), University of Delaware Cooperative Extension (UDCE) and the 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,” says Jessica Watson, sediment and stormwater program manager at SCD.
“If you are new to Delaware, we want you to learn how your actions on private land, at home and in community open space affects water quality for all in Sussex County,” says Tracy Wootten, horticulture agent at UDCE.
Registered attendees will receive the webinar link one day prior to the event.
