Urban storm water run-off 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 lakes, streams, and rivers receiving the runoff.
Metropolitan State University is participating with cities and communities across the country to clean up storm water and reduce flooding, improving our public waters for environmental and recreational uses.
Jim Tiggelaar, civil project manager for LHB Corporation, and Dustin Halverson, account manager for Village Green Landscapes, will present Metropolitan State’s plan and answer questions at the university’s annual Storm Water Information Meeting.
Time: 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
When: Thursday, June 14, 2018
Where: Metropolitan State University
Science Education Center, Room 115
