February Pints ‘n’ Plants: Soaking up the Rain: Using Green Infrastructure to Manage Stormwater

Wednesday, February 15
6:30-7:30pm
Urban Chestnut Brewing Company in the Grove
4465 Manchester Ave., 63110
Speaker:  Lance LeComb of  the STL Metropolitan Sewer District
 
Discover the benefits of Green Infrastructure with the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District as they present on their newest pilot program!

 

Practices or facilities that reduce the volume, rate, or pollutant load of storm water runoff before it ever reaches the sewer system or local waterways is known as green infrastructure – and it’s a growing trend in metropolises around the world. Join us as we learn about MSD’s Combined Sewer Overflow Long Term Control Plan and their efforts to create an environmentally friendly and sustainable green infrastructure program in the combined sewer area the flows to CSOs along the Mississippi River.

 
This event is open to the general public with a $5 suggested donation.
Gateway Greening’s Pints ‘n’ Plants is financed in part through an allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the City of St. Louis’ Community Development Administration.
