Watershed management could be the difference
between a flooded basement and minimal damage. Stormwater, when not
properly handled, floods communities, creates more erosion problems
and adds more pollution to the waterways.
In the effort to help combat this problem, Northeast Ohio
Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) has created initiatives that
expand watershed planning and green space to reduce flooding and
Beginning in January, a utility fee will be assessed to
residents based on the square feet of paved or �impervious�
surfaces. The Sewer District will supply a credit to residents who
implement a District-approved Stormwater Control Measure to reduce
regional costs for stormwater problems.
For residents interested in the credit or have questions, join
NEORSD staff and Cleveland Metroparks Senior Natural Resources
Manager Jennifer Grieser for the �Residential Stormwater Credit�
Workshop on Wednesday, December 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Padua
Franciscan High School
The workshop focuses on helping residents protect their
communities and manage stormwater on their property by utilizing
rain gardens, rain barrels or other Stormwater Control Measures.
Residents who are just starting to investigate the options can come
to hear ideas, and those who already have a grasp on the issue can
bring plans or photographs of their improvements to submit a credit
application at the end of the workshop.
The workshop takes place in the Multi-Media Room of Padua
Franciscan High School, located at 6740 State Road in Parma.

Jennifer Grieser at 440-331-8679.
