The EPA’s newest DVD, “Reduce Runoff: Slow it Down, Spread it out, Soak it in!” teaches viewers how to control runoff in urban areas. The DVD was created in partnership with the U.S Botanic Garden and consists of four educational videos that can be used for outreach or to fulfill requirements for EPA’s Stormwater MS4 program.
The film showcases green techniques such as rain gardens, green roofs, and rain barrels that can reduce the effects of stormwater runoff on water bodies downstream. Emphasis is placed on mimicking the natural movement of water through an urban area before designing techniques.
The videos can be viewed online or ordered from the National Service Center for Environmental Publications (NSCEP). Click here for viewing and ordering information and to find out more about the videos.
