Stormwater Education Series: The Art and Science of Green Stormwater Infrastructure Design
Speaker: Sarah Hoffmeier, Landscape Designer, Landscapes Rooted in Design
Sarah will share her experiences designing, installing, and maintaining the rain garden at Montpelier, Vermont’s VSECU (Vermont State Employees Credit Union). This bioretention system at the junction of the Siboinebi Trail and Bailey Ave manages stormwater runoff from the parking lot. Sarah designed the rain garden to include specific plants that have capacity to uptake certain pollutants and to ensure an aesthetically-pleasing garden for passers-by.
