Residents of Princeton are encouraged to attend the Princeton Council meeting on June 12, at 7 p.m., to speak in favor of a stormwater ordinance, and urge their elected officials to vote for passage of the ordinance.
Stormwater runoff is believed to be the number one source of water pollution and flooding in our region, but towns can take action to address this problem. The new stormwater ordinance, introduced May 8 by the Princeton Council, will help address flooding problems and reduce the amount of pollution discharged into its waters, including Lake Carnegie.
The Watershed Association is pleased to have worked with the Princeton Environmental Commission, the council, mayor and the engineering staff for the last ten months. More information about this issue, please read our article.
Please join the Watershed Association at the upcoming Princeton Council’s public hearing on this issue – starting at 7 p.m. on June 12 – to support this important work. 400 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ 08540.
