Spring Stormwater Control Measure Maintenance Tips

It may not feel like it today, but it is indeed spring in Ohio. Spring is a great time to freshen up our yards and do needed maintenance. The same goes for stormwater control measures like rain gardens, permeable pavement, green roofs, and basins.

Our Stormwater Control Measure Maintenance Tips outreach campaign continues this month to deliver useful information and seasonal tips for property owners, managers, contractors, and HOAs to assist with stormwater control measure maintenance needs.

You can see these SCM specific emails for April by clicking on the links below. There is a subscribe option in the top left corner of the page if you would like to be added to our email lists.

(See links to our winter February tips in this blog.)

For more detailed information about routine and non-routine maintenance of stormwater control measures (SCMs), download the Maintaining Stormwater Control Measures Manual.
