WASHINGTON, DC, Dec. 22, 2008 -- US EPA Region 5 invites you to participate in a webinar on the innovative aspects of using compost as a stormwater best management practice (BMP) on Jan. 8.

The guest speakers will discuss their experiences in with compost and some of their ideas on other ways it can be used on landscapes to manage stormwater runoff.

This webinar is one of a series of webinars that the EPA Region 5 is hosting to support the use of these BMPs, and thus increase the recycling of organic waste materials. Two other sessions will provide information to the composting industry and construction site managers.
