May 5: Storm Water Information Meeting

The annual Storm Water Information Meeting lets the community know what is being done to mitigate storm water pollution in the nation.

Urban storm water runoff contains heavy metals, including lead, organics such as pesticides, and nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus in threatening quantities that cause water quality problems in the lakes, streams and rivers that receive the runoff.

Metropolitan State University is participating with adjoining cities and communities across the country to clean up storm water and reduce flooding. This will improve our public waters for recreational and environmental uses.

The brownbag meeting is open to the university community and the public and will be 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm, Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the Metropolitan State University Science Education Center, Room 115. Jim Tiggelaar of LHB Corporation will present the University’s plan and answer questions.
