Southeast Michigan has many high quality rivers and lakes. Rain events can impact these surface waters when stormwater collects contaminants and runs into them. Water quality in these lakes and rivers can be preserved by adding attractive landscape features designed to collect and prevent runoff.

MSU Extension is offering a Landscaping for Water Quality program to assist homeowners, municipalities and multi-family complexes in developing natural ways to reduce runoff.  The program will cover stormwater basics, Low Impact Development (LID) techniques, plant types and uses in LID design and onsite design assistance to incorporate LID practices on your property.

These programs will be held on Tuesday, September 10 from 6:30 to 9 PM at the MSUE Assembly Rooms in the VerKuilen Bldg., 21885 Dunham Rd., Clinton Township. 

The program will be repeated on Monday, September 23 in the Wayne County RESA Bldg., 5454 Venoy Rd., Wayne MI from 6 – 8:30 PM.

The cost is $8 per person (pre-registration) or $10 at the door and includes instruction, Landscaping for Water Quality Book, additional handouts and assistance to develop a customized landscape design.

To register or for more information: Call 586-469-6440 or go to msue50@msu.edu

Upon receipt of your check (made payable to MSU Extension), a confirmation email will be sent with pre-program information.
