Maintaining stormwater landscape features is an important and often forgotten piece to local water quality and quantity management.
In many cities and towns, homeowner associations (HOAs) own and are required to maintain some of the stormwater infrastructure in their neighborhoods, including ponds, swales, check dams, shoreline plantings, rain gardens, pervious paving, and other features located on common property.
In response to this importance piece of water quality that sometimes gets lost in the transfer of property ownership, the Stormwater Landscape Maintenance Training was initiated to help Indiana Homeowners Associations, property managers, landscape contractors, and land developers understand stormwater feature maintenance requirements and how to read Operation & Maintenance Plans in order to avoid corrective action.
