Reminder: TONIGHT Teresa Hollingsworth Speaks on Low Impact Development (LID) in Ingersoll

Reminder: Join the Ingersoll District Nature Club TONIGHT (Tuesday, February 10, 2015) at 7:00 pm for a special presentation on “Low Impact Development (LID) in Ingersoll” with Guest Speaker Teresa Hollingsworth of the Upper Thames Conservation Authority at Ingersoll Public Library Meeting Room.

LID is a stormwater management approach, using small, simple designs and landscape features at the lot level, to infiltrate, filter, store, evaporate and detain runoff close to its source.  Come learn about simple solutions to reducing the rate and amount of water running off your property – which in turn lessens water runoff to storm sewers and reduces any negative impact on our water quality.  Rain gardens, bioswales, downspout redirects, and rain barrels are all part of the solutions.  Come hear more from Teresa on this interesting topic.
