Stormwater University will host 2 free maintenance workshops for owners of stormwater facilities.  Workshop topics will include how to maintain stormwater ponds, bioswales, rain gardens, catch basins, oil water separator, and similar stormwater facilities.  Owners of private stormwater systems are encouraged to take advantage of this free training event to learn what you can do yourself and when to hire a professional for assistance.  Proper maintenance of your stormwater system will save you money, protect water quality, minimize potential liability, and reduce flooding and erosion.  Each session will begin with a series of short presentations, followed by field visits to view various stormwater facility types.
