Meeting to recap efforts to reduce stormwater pollution
There will be landscaping tips for home and business owners as well as advice on how to get better de-icing results with less salt; plus Lake Superior College will share information on how they've developed rain gardens and other outdoor landscaping both to improve the campus setting and reduce stormwater pollution getting into area streams and Lake Superior.
These are among the presentations scheduled for an annual meeting on stormwater pollution prevention, put on by members of the Regional Stormwater Protection Team.
