Dallas School District Stormwater Basins

Presentation by John Levitsky (Luzerne County Conservation District)

The Dallas School District was involved in MS4 stormwater upgrades through the planting of existing flood reduction basins. The stormwater basins were a maintenance problem that was resolved by planting the basins, allowing the basins to grow improved water quality, created on-site education labs for students, and reduced summer water temperatures entering streams while reducing the district's carbon footprint.
