Details: The guest speaker will be Jane Maginot, Washington County Extension Agent for water quality. Jane will be speaking on the nature of stormwater and why it needs to be controlled.  Stormwater runoff occurs when precipitation from rain or snow-melt flows over the ground. Impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalk, streets, and parking lots prevent stormwater from naturally soaking into the ground. Stormwater acts like a magnet, picking up everything in its path and then carrying it, usually untreated, into our storm drain systems to local streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands. This runoff contains pollutants such as oil, sediment, litter, pet waste, chemicals, and fertilizers which can impact the Alliance'swork to protect Beaver Lake. Learn about what stormwater is, how it moves, and what are the regulations on stormwater in Northwest Arkansas and around the state.
