Stormwater Info, Insights and Outreach – Program Meeting on February 24

Stormwater – A Resource to be Harnessed? Or a Destructive Threat?

Attend this Stormwater Training program to learn causes and harms of increasing stormwater runoff – flooding, flood damage, pollution and erosion. Hear what residents, townships, and developers can do to prevent stormwater runoff.

Stormwater runoff has been a major issue of the Darby Creek for many years, impacting communities from Radnor Township downstream to Eastwick and John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in southwest Philadelphia.

Now is an important time for Eastwick residents and stakeholders to learn about stormwater, so that we can make informed decisions about critical community issues.

At this insightful program meeting, Dr. Steve Souza, President of Princeton Hydro Engineering firm and a leading expert in the field, will talk about the causes and effective solutions for stormwater, erosion and associated pollution. Participants will have opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversations.

Stormwater affects everyone. Come and find out how you can help make a difference. Together we can protect and preserve our communities for years to come!
