Every year, thousands of people visit the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA. Thus, the stormwater management practices used at the Complex are highly visible and act as educational touchstones. As you'll see in the video, the Complex employed a variety of techniques to keep polluted runoff out of the Paxton Creek (which flows into the Susquehanna and ultimately into the Chesapeake Bay). The savings from the lower water and sewer bills will actually surpass the initial investment over time. "Simply put," says Executive Director Patrick Kerwin, "the greening effort at the Complex makes good business sense."
