Did you know that Prince George’s County’s Rain Check Program offers rebates to homeowners, businesses and others to install best management practices (BMPs) intended to capture stormwater runoff? This training is designed to provide landscape professionals with practical hands-on information on Rain Check Rebate practices and processes. Special emphasis is placed on rain gardens, pavement removal and permeable pavement.
This all-day training teaches landscape professionals how to plan, design, construct and maintain Rain Check Rebate practices. Classroom exercises provide guidance on practice selection, site assessment and site selection. After completion of the classroom training, participants are eligible to sign up for Day 2, which will be a field day to further hone their skills and help install or assess stormwater BMPs. Participants who successfully complete both presentations (classroom training + field day) will be added to the County’s public list of landscape professionals who have completed the Rain Check Rebate Contractor Training.
