Stormwater Hike October 18th

Join the Montgomery County Sierra Club on Saturday, October 18, 2008 from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm for a two-stop hike to view stormwater problems and solutions. Meet at the McKenney Hills Alternative Center, 2600 Hayden Drive, Silver Spring, MD. We will investigate the ravages of stormwater on a small stream in lower Rock Creek and then visit a school site that showcases “low-impact” solutions. Learn why stormwater is the number one water pollution source in Montgomery County and how it threatens our clean drinking water supplies, our public lands, and our backyard streams with erosion and contamination.
