About this Presentation:

Stormwater runoff is the #1 source of water pollution in NC's urbanizing areas. NC is consistently ranked in the top 5 fastest growing populations. More people means more buildings, roads, parking lots and more impervious areas that produce runoff! Native plants often play an important role in small-scale stormwater practices that can be used to help control stormwater in the landscape.

Participants will increase their knowledge and understanding of:

- why stormwater is an issue

- effects on water quality

- practices that can be used to control stormwater in the landscape

- use of native plants in designs

The presentation will be recorded for 

members to view later in our Video Library.

Mitch Woodward has worked for NC Cooperative Extension in the water quality protection and stormwater field across the state for 27 years.

He grew up on a farm in Delaware and has worked for the DuPont Company, Penn State University, University of Maryland, and The US Department of Agriculture on water quality protection issues.
