Event Details

Join USGBC New York Upstate and Our Partner, Corning, Inc. on June 3rd in Ithaca at The Space for an informational and educational presentation on the highly successful program  Save the Rain   

Overview:.

Learn about the successful program, practices, and incentives used in the Save the Rain program in Onondaga County. The program is a comprehensive stormwater management plan intended to reduce pollution to Onondaga Lake and its tributaries. During wet weather events, stormwater flows into the local sewer system, causing heavy flow periods that can overload the system.  Although the causes of Harmful Algal Bloom (HABs) vary from lake to lake, phosphorus pollution—from sources such as wastewater treatment plants, septic systems, and fertilizer runoff—is a major contributor. Learn how this program may assist with HABs prevention and treatment moving forward. Explore opportunities to implement ‘green’ and ‘gray’ practices in homes, schools, businesses, and communities.
