LandStudies Reaching out to Municipalities to Promote Economic Ecology
In LandStudies’ trend-setting publication, Economic Ecology™: Floodplain Restoration, twelve Pennsylvania case studies demonstrate the economic rewards of tackling environmental issues on a regional scale, specifically through floodplain restoration.
LandStudies wants municipalities throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed and beyond to benefit from the concepts of Economic Ecology. In early January, they launched a campaign to make more township and borough managers, parks and rec directors, and elected officials aware of the ways that Economic Ecology can
- increase property values, particularly around parks and other greenspaces,
- protect property and infrastructure from flooding,
- improve water quality in local streams and rivers, and
- enhance aesthetic values that make people linger in an area longer.
LandStudies MS4 Experts
LandStudies is uniquely qualified to work with municipalities to improve water quality and meet their municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) program goals, as they have the first Certified Professional in Municipal Stormwater Management (CPMSM) in Pennsylvania. The company has provided a variety of MS4 and floodplain restoration services to more than 35 municipalities in the state.
Throughout 2017, LandStudies will meet with interested municipalities to discuss Economic Ecology and how its concepts can work for them. If your community could benefit from regional efforts to tackle water and stormwater issues, please contact Christine Le at 717-627-4440.
