Successful municipal stormwater management requires knowledge and collaboration among several disciplines like engineering, ecology, hydrology, and public relations and education.


Watershed education connects behavior to stormwater successes or failures. Education outreach can build a base of knowledge that can increase support for local stormwater programs.

Bucks County Conservation District is available help with your education and outreach events.


Building on public knowledge, municipalities can turn to other community organizations to accomplish intersecting stormwater management goals.

Community partnerships are built when municipalities find overlapping goals with civic organizations or interest groups. Look to the local scouting troop, gardening clubs, watershed associations, birding groups, or the Penn State Extension Service for potential project partners.
