Urban stormwater runoff contains heavy metals including lead, organics such as pesticides, and nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus in threatening quantities that cause water quality problems in the receiving water bodies - lakes, streams and rivers.
Metropolitan State University is participating with adjoining cities and communities across the country to clean up storm water and reduce flooding in order to improve our public waters for recreational and environmental use. University efforts will be discussed at the annual Storm Water Information Meeting. Students, staff, faculty and community members are invited.
Jim Tiggelaar, PE, CCS, LEED AP, a civil project manager for LHB Corporation will be present to unveil the university's plan and answer questions.
