2017 Fall Lecture: Adapting Our Home

Understanding the relationship between stormwater, infrastructure, and nature.

Thursday, November 9 at 7:00pm

Long Reach Hall, Maine Maritime Museum in Bath

Join the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust at our fall lecture event on a global conservation issue of local relevance.

The City of Bath commissioned a study to better understand how rainwater moves through Bath’s downtown district and impacts the water quality of the Kennebec River. The study evaluated the downtown stormwater drain system and adjacent paved areas. The goal is to identify low-impact solutions to respond to storm-related threats, like flooding and polluted stormwater runoff. Join us to dive into the stormwater study’s methods as well as its outcomes, which include a storm management model and conceptual green infrastructure projects.

Speakers are from:
City of Bath Planning & Development Department
Ransom Consulting Engineers & Scientists

$5 suggested donation.
