Chester County Municipal Stormwater Summit, Coatesville, PA

Too much rain, not absorbed into the ground, becomes stormwater runoff. This can cause flooding. Stormwater runoff is also one of the major causes of water pollution in Chester County. Pollutants such as soil and automotive fluid are carried off in the runoff that flows to the nearest stream. This summit is focused on municipal stormwater issues, but all are welcome to attend. No pre-registration required.

Location: Public Safety Training Campus, 137 Modena Road,
