Buckland Creek Project
The Town of Brighton is partnering with the Water Education Collaborative on the "Buckland Creek Restoration Project". This grant funded demonstration project will provide assistance to homeowners with installing rain barrels, rain gardens, and streamside plantings on their property to reduce stormwater pollution and protect the Creek. For details, see the Project Brochure and Community Participation Information Summary. Homeowners who live directly along Buckland Creek have a special opportunity to help restore this community resource and are especially encouraged to participate. Paul Sawyko, the project manager at the Collaborative, may be contacted at 753-5441. A brief PowerPoint presentation regarding the project can be found at the following link: Buckland Creek WEC
