  • StormwaterPA - Getting Local About Stormwater: Saving Streams helps the Chesapeake Bay
    plus participants we d accomplish Bay cleanup goals in a flash but until such a time we ll continue to seek out the innovators and share what we learn One consistent theme that emerged from the retreat is the need to break down the perception barriers that stand in the way of change When people get it is when action occurs and the combined impacts of localized actions are what will ultimately impact the health of the Bay Whether we re talking about retrofitting streets in ways that keep runoff out of overburdened sewer systems creating residential sub divisions based on the principles of low impact design or encouraging property owners to replace manicured landscapes with more natural spaces that create habitat and manage stormwater in far better ways we know that proven and cost effective solutions exist We just need to continue the process of sharing successes in ways that create a mind shift and inspire everyone to get into the act Saving Streams in the Cedar Run Watershed from GreenTreks Network on Vimeo The retreat featured a small screen film festival during which a variety of videos were shown We re thrilled to say that for the second year in a row we came away with the coveted Stoneroller Award for best video Check out Saving Streams in Cedar Run which was entered by our friends from the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay It s one of the videos on our Reign in the Rain DVD Order your copy today On a completely different tack we really liked the Runner up video which was part of a campaign in the Washington DC area s effort to address trash in its waterways Check it out Comments 0 Name Email Website Notify of New Replies Allowed tags b i br
