The 2014 Stormwater Challenge Workshop Series is finished.

We expect to receive funding to offer this series again in fall 2014 or winter/spring 2015. Please subscribe to the SW Watershed e-newsletter to receive updates about this series and other watershed events.

This workshop series will help!

Workshop Series

Build the Best Practices

Participants receive additional hands-on training as we install stormwater projects at three residential demonstration sites with varying types of challenging conditions. We work together to implement designs from the Introductory Workshop, with some additional consultation with each of the homeowners. Because we focus on different techniques and conditions at each site, participants are encouraged (but not required) to attend all workshops!
