HOW STORMWATER MANAGEMENT REDUCES NEIGHBORHOOD FLOODING & IMPROVES WATER QUALITY AT LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN

A presentation at Propeller – 4035 Washington Avenue

Monday, March 20, 7:00 PM

Presented by Land Trust for Louisiana

 

On Monday evening March 24, the Land Trust for Louisiana will describe an EPA-funded program sponsored by the Sewerage & Water Board, aimed at demonstrating methods of stormwater reduction and improved water quality through Green Infrastructure (GI).

Come learn about this EPA-funded program and how the proposed project for 3601 General Taylor encourages Green Infrastructure methods to reduce stormwater runoff, improve water quality at Lake Pontchartrain, and minimize the flooding we see all too often in Broadmoor.

Most importantly…
Come and see how YOUR role as a member of the community is important to its success!

All are welcome to attend, to learn about the program and the design concepts being considered, as well as to offer thoughts and suggestions.  This free meeting will be held at the Propeller Incubator’s Small Conference Room, 4035 Washington Ave., starting at 7PM.

Community input and involvement is important to the New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board.
Success depends upon active neighborhood involvement.
