We will talk about how to encourage property owners to put in green practices to help control rainwater from washing pollution and dirt off of their property. We will talk about the science behind these green practices, how to explain the science surrounding these practices to people, and why people should know about them. We will show how communities can learn from one another about how to use these practices. Finally, we will show how to use an economics tool to explain when the costs and benefits of putting in these types of tools.
