Three Creeks Library Hosts Xeripave.
Rain carries dirt,oil,and grease off driveway surfaces straight into storm drains and into our streams. Reduce the amount of water that runs off your property by installing permeable pavement. Many local municipalities install permeable asphalt and permeable pavers already. Ron Putz from Xeripave will talk about permeable paver installation, maintenance, and benefits of permeable pavement systems. Learn how to make your driveway more attractive or your patio more interesting while reducing the runoff from your property.
Washington State University Clark County Extension and Clark County Environmental services co-sponsor this Permeable Pavements Workshop with cooperation of the Southwest Washington Stormwater Partners. It will be offered on Thursday, March 3, 2011, from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Three Creeks Library in Salmon Creek (800 NE Tenney Road, Vancouver (across the parking lot from Fred Meyer).
Jenifer Naas, Watershed Stewards Program Coordinator, says, “You see examples of permeable pavers all over the area, now you can learn how they work and how to use them on your property.” This is a free workshop, however class size is limited to 30 participants and pre-registration is required. Call the WSU Extension at 360-397-6060 ext. 0.
