Municipal Impervious Cover Assessments & Green Infrastructure

Monday, May 4
5:30pm - 8:30pm
Cumberland County College
Luciano Center
3322 College Drive
Vineland

Do roads, homes and businesses in your community fl ood from rain storms? Are
your local streams clean and healthy? In this workshop, experts will present proven strategies to reduce fl ooding, improve and protect clean water.

Hard surfaces such as roads, sidewalks and compacted lawns are known as
impervious cover, which leads to flooding and water pollution by interrupting the
natural water cycle. This workshop will highlight how to conduct an impervious
cover assessment and construct green infrastructure to reduce stormwater
runoff , create habitat, and protect and restore clean water in your streams
and aquifers. Explore environmental commission involvement in these projects
and opportunities for grants.

Also learn about residential sustainable living by taking a virtual tour of the
ultimate “Watershed House” that is designed as a net-zero energy home that
can also harvest, recycle and reuse water.

 

This Workshop is offered free of charge thanks to a generous donation from Atlantic City Electric/Pepco Holdings.

    system by conserving household water use and using septic friendly practices.
  • Pinelands Septic Regulations: New Jersey’s Pinelands are a diverse and globally
    signifi cant ecosystem. One-third of Pinelands homes use septic systems
    that drain to drinking water sources. Learn how the Pineland Regulations protect your drinking water in the globally recognized Pinelands biosphere.
  • Door Prize Drawing: $50 Bob Drayton’s Septic Service Coupon for pumping/service.
