Delaware County Conservation District hosted the Delaware County Facility Managers Stormwater Management Training on April 11, 2022. Thirteen county staff were present, including emergency services personnel, parks and recreation managers, conservation district staff, the emergency services training center manager, and the environmental advocate from the Delaware County District Attorney’s office.

Presenters from the Center for Watershed Protection effectively explained watersheds, non-point source pollution, and stormwater management. Presentations covered the importance of proper stormwater management for water quality improvement in Delaware County. County facility managers and other county staff learned about watersheds, identifying and maintaining stormwater features on their properties, illicit discharges, and the appropriate contacts for stormwater-related issues.

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.
