Join us for our November general meeting at Medstar Harbor Hospital
Our speaker witll be Joan Plisko with Plisko Sustainable Solutions. Joan will present on a very relevant topic entitled Case Study for Medstar Harbor Hospital - Assessing the Stormwater Management Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices of a Maryland Hospital.
Paved parking lots, garages, and rooftops can accumulate rain water, snow, and cooling tower condensation that may run off and end up in local waterways, carrying pollutants such as oil, grease, pesticides, and fertilizers. With funding from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, a multi-stakeholder team (The Team) of non-profit, consulting, and government staff worked with a Maryland hospital to evaluate and recommend opportunities to improve facility stormwater management operations and to improve staff knowledge regarding the connection between stormwater and human health.
