The Lehigh County Conservation District and project partners carried out a stormwater demonstration tour on April 23, 2022. Seventy-five South Whitehall Township residents learned about the importance of reducing stormwater runoff and non-point source pollution. In addition, the tour included information on native plantings, riparian buffers, rain gardens, and rain barrels.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
