A Watershed Awareness/Rain Barrel Workshop will be held next week at the City-County building to teach residents how to protect local rivers and streams by improving watershed conditions on land.
Residents will learn how to manage and reuse storm-water runoff and reduce their contribution to combined sewer overflow, flooding and polluted urban run-off. Participants will also receive a voucher for a free 55-gallon rain barrel with installation hardware, as well as learn how to install the barrel and use it to harvest rainwater.
The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m, Thurs., June 13, in the City-County Building lobby. Cost is $50 per person or $55 per couple; RSVP date is Tuesday, June 11. RSVP by calling Nancy Martin at 412-488-7490, extension 247, or registering online.
