Weir River Environmental Forum #4: 

The Future of Stormwater

Keeping Clean Water in Your Community

Wednesday, April 23 

 6:30 pm - 9 pm 

at the South Shore Country Club

274 South St Hingham

Presentations at the forum will include:

  • Solving the Stormwater Management Puzzle
  • Protecting Water Resources
  • Clean Water Landscaping
  • Thinking About Clean Water and Development 

Cities such as Seattle, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia are taking an approach that focuses on sustainability and multiple benefits and have identified millions of 

dollars in annual benefits that would have been unrealized had they chosen to continue to invest in only traditional storm sewers.

 

Kurt Gaertner, MA Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs, 

Katy Konary, Fay, Spoffoard & Thorndike, David Farrag Cohasset Conservation Commission, Scott McIsaac Hingham Conservation Commission are amongst the speakers.
