About the Series

West Pikeland Township's Environmental Advisory Council is proud to present this informative webinar series on stormwater. During the Water Wise Series, we aim to educate participants on how to improve the ways we handle stormwater, introduce green stormwater infrastructure concepts and types, give property owners ways to capture stormwater where it falls and improve the impact on streams in our area.Stormwater has become an ever-increasing issue for communities, home and property owners, and natural habitats. Streams have turned from tranquil places of beauty to torrents as downpours have intensified. Home and property owners have seen flooding in basements and property damage and loss. Communities have had to manage road and bridge closures as stormwater overwhelms infrastructure.
