Webinar: Reducing Stormwater Runoff with Biochar Addition to Soils in Ellicott City

November 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The University of Delaware, in conjunction with Howard Ecoworks, conducted an innovative research project to test the runoff reduction potential of biochar as a soil amendment. Biochar was amended to two test sites in Ellicott City, MD, and infiltration and other soil properties were monitored over a 1.5-year period. The impact of biochar on increasing stormwater infiltration rates and annual average stormwater infiltration will be presented. This work was funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
