About the Program

The Stream Smart Stormwater House Call program creates avenues for improved stormwater management on private property in this densely urbanized watershed where large restoration projects are limited. Our program will help educate you on stormwater pollution and provide an opportunity to have a stormwater audit of your property.

The audit will identify changes you can take to reduce stormwater runoff leaving your property. Each audit will provide owners with a detailed report regarding the current stormwater situation on the property, and the various best management practices you can take to reduce this impact.

The audits are provided by representatives from one or more than one of the following organizations depending upon where you live:

Darby Creek Valley Association

DCVA is a nonprofit watershed organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the Darby Creek Watershed and its resources, including water, wildlife, historical sites, floodplains, wetlands, and riparian zones. DCVA works to prevent all forms of pollution in the Darby Creek and its tributaries by identifying sources of stormwater pollution, illegal dumping and construction within floodplain and riparian buffer zones, and working with local and regional authorities for corrective action. We help to improve the stream through clean-ups and public education programs. Our team consists of environmental scientists, policy-makers, professional educators, ecologists, and many more individuals with years of experience in various fields.
