Stormwater management workshop to be held at Ferguson Township Municipal Building

A multidimensional workshop on stormwater will take place at the Ferguson Township Municipal Building.

The 6-9 p.m. Thursday workshop will be presented by the Spring Greening Team at Penn State, a group of students that will host the educational session on what stormwater is, its effects on streams in watersheds and the importance of managing runoff.

Those attending will tour the municipal building property for a demonstration of stormwater management techniques. Following the outdoor session, the workshop will go indoors for a discussion on how homeowners can apply stormwater management techniques to their properties.

The goal of the workshop is to equip each homeowner with the knowledge and resources to start an individual stormwater management plan.

The municipal building is located at 3147 Research Drive.
