Integration: Stormwater Management
Proper stormwater management can prevent flooding, erosion, sewer overflows, habitat destruction as well as stave off negative health effects related to fecal coliform, bacteria, parasites, trash, animal waste and more. PSS is partnering with Blue Water Baltimore, the Neighborhood Design Center, and  Baltimore City Department of Public Works to assist MedStar Harbor Hospital in developing a stormwater management plan. To better understand the environmental, economic, and health effects of polluted stormwater, check out our presentation on stormwater management.
