Water is our most precious resource, and yet water quality is decreasing in many of our lakes and streams, due to a combination of stormwater runoff and other non-point sources of pollution including agriculture. In this presentation Rebecca explains how landscape design can be used to increase water quality by increasing infiltration and slowing down runoff. Features to be discussed include: green roofs, permeable pavers and curb cuts, rainwater harvesting, bioswales and rain gardens, vegetative buffers, woodland restoration and lawn alternatives. Presentation includes detailed diagrams, and a discussion on the cost-benefit analysis of adopting green infrastructure for both municipalities and homeowners.
