On October 20, 2022, the Lehigh County Conservation District and its partners carried out a Sustainable Backyard Workshop at the Lehigh County Water Authority. The workshop educated 26 homeowners on the importance of reducing stormwater runoff and nonpoint source pollution through the use of best management practices. Attendees learned about different types of nonpoint source pollution around their homes. They were given recommendations on best management practices they can install and maintain at home to minimize the impacts of stormwater runoff and nonpoint source pollution.

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.
