Stormwater Pond Maintenance Workshop

Date & Time:
Thursday, December 5, 2019
8:30 am

DNREC Lewes Field Office
901 Pilottown Rd.
Lewes, Delaware

Join experts from the Sussex Conservation District to learn about stormwater pond maintenance.

This free workshop for Sussex County property owners will focus on the task of maintaining stormwater ponds found commonly in subdivisions in the County. Stormwater ponds collect surface runoff to manage and help prevent downstream flooding, remove pollutants, and settle suspended sediments transported by stormwater.

Maintenance responsibilities for stormwater ponds often fall on property owners and homeowners associations.

The workshop will provide general information on why stormwater pond management is needed and how to ensure a pond’s proper function for years to come.

Seating is limited. Pre-registration is encouraged. To register for a workshop or for more information, please contact the Sussex Conservation District at 302-856-2105, or register online at
