Down the Drain: Stormwater Management in Hamilton | Tuesday, February 8 @ 6 PM

Storms are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change and we are experiencing more pollution in our waterways and flooding in our communities. This is putting a ton of pressure on our stormwater management systems. But there’s a solution! If we work together to manage rain where it falls we can lessen the impact on our infrastructure and restore our natural waterways. Learn from the City of Hamilton, Hamilton Water group about where your stormwater goes, how to keep our infrastructure operational and why lot-level (e.g. from your yard!) intervention is important for pollution and flood control in our communities.
