A guided tour of some of Montgomery County’s sustainable stormwater management practices. This tour evaluates implemented low-impact development practices that capture stormwater from buildings, parking lots, and surrounding roads. The tour explores a variety of low impact development practices, their impacts over time, and what we can learn from these practices with particular focus on planting design, soils and operations and maintenance. Following the tour will be a catered lunch and round table discussion featuring local experts to discuss recent trends, insights and opportunities. You can register for either the tour or the lunch discussion – or both!
