SUMMARY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STORMWATER PROBLEMS
 

 The board recently received a report prepared by Welspring regarding the stormwater best management practices (BMPs) in the community--specifically addressing the rain gardens and bioswales. The report examines the condition of each BMP and concludes with recommendations for steps to take to address the community's most serious stormwater problems. The board will present and discuss this report at the next regular community meeting and will then seek financing for the steps the community agrees to.

PLANTS

 

Landscaping with native plants is one way we can

address the  stormwater management issues in our community. The link below provides easily accessible information on native plants, including guidance on what type of plants you might want to use depending on your site and preferences. We hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions, feel free to contact John Wakeman-Linn (jwakemanlinn@verizon.net; 202-560-0996)
