Webinar: Maintaining Streams in Your Community
May 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT
Flooding is a problem. Municipalities face an ongoing struggle to prevent damage and disruption to residents and businesses caused by flooding, which is often both time-consuming and costly to fix.
What can municipal leaders do? When does the DEP need to get involved? What other resources are out there?
Join Local Government Academy in partnership with the Sustainable Community Development Network (SCDN) of Sustainable Pittsburgh in this webinar featuring Greg Holesh, the Environmental Group Manager and Permitting and Technical Support at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), as he details the causes of flooding for communities of the southwestern region, as well as how to smartly mitigate stream maintenance with and without DEP notification, pre-approval, or permits, and what you can do to reduce and prevent flooding in your neighborhoods.
