      EVENT DETAILS
      FSWCD Viewing of CWP Webcast #6: Salt & Stormwater – The Salinization of Our Watersheds

      Come join us in our office as we view this webcast, hosted by the Center for Watershed Protection.  Registration is free and a pizza lunch included thanks to our sponsor, StormwaterInspect. Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and other resources approximately 1 week after the event. Webcast Description: The increase in sodium and chloride concentrations in fresh water in the United States is a major cause for concern. Salinization is degrading habitat for aquatic organisms and impacting large supplies of drinking water throughout the country. Research has found chloride concentrations of up to 25% of the concentration of seawater in streams of Maryland, New York, and New Hampshire during winters, and chloride concentrations remaining up to 100 times greater than unimpacted forest streams during summers. This webcast will look at some of the latest research on sodium and chlorides and explore ways to reduce its impact on our local aquatic ecosystems. Not in the Central Ohio area?  No problem!  Two additional free viewing locations are available or you can purchase the webcasts directly through www.cwp.org and view them remotely.Southwest Ohio Location: Butler County Storm Water District / Butler County Engineers OfficeRegister for this location by emailing Bob Lentz or calling (513) 785-4101 Northeast Ohio Location: Ohio EPA (Northeast Ohio Stormwater Training Council)Register for this location on Eventbrite
