Manage Water to Prevent Flooding

joy-of-waterThe “Joy of Water” is modeled after the “Joy of Cooking” book. Check out the PDF of the pamphlet here.

The purpose of “The Joy of Water” is to provide the knowledge and tools to motivate individuals to improve drainage at their homes and reduce the negative impacts to our communities and water resources.

Using these “recipes“, each of us can collectively impact small scale flooding and water quality across the entire region. If you use all of the “recipes” in this book, or even just one, you will be supporting the health, safety and resilience of our community and its watershed by encouraging infiltration, filtration and detention of the rain water falling on our lawns, our homes and our streets.

Please share these “recipes” with your friends and neighbors. Together we can make a difference.
