Ahead of the Storm Project Takes Off

September 21, 2016

Ahead of the Storm (AOTS) was created to demonstrate "optimal conservation practices" that citizens/businesses can do on their property to mitigate stormwater run-off. Optimal conservation practices (OCPs) are practices that provide the maximum amount of mitigation and allow such sites to be highly resilient for up 100-year storm events. 14 demonstrations sites have been identified across Shelburne, Charlotte, and Hinesburg (2 of which are complete) that will allow citizens to view the site and learn which practices are best suited for their property. Demonstration sites include the Charlotte Library, Hinesburg Town Garage, the Brook Lane neighborhood in Shelburne, and Mack Farm in Charlotte.
