INFORMATION FROM THE KB STORMWATER & ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE

Beginning today and continuing every week, the Town’s Stormwater and Environmental Committee will be sharing educational information and helpful tips in the weekly Town News email as part of their Mission Statement to educate the public. Here is this week’s installation:

 

Stormwater runoff is the rain that runs off streets, rooftops, parking lots, lawns and other land surfaces. As communities develop, more impervious surfaces are created and less rainfall can soak into the ground. This increases flooding and stream bank erosion.
