HRRC offers remedies for soggy yards in June 30 talk

During periods of heavy rain here in Northeastern Ohio, it’s not unusual to have standing water for extended periods. Homeowners can learn about Yard Drainage Options from J. Meiring Borcherds, watershed coordinator for the sustainable environments program of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

This free presentation, sponsored by Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC), will take place on Tuesday, June 30, 7–8:30 p.m., at HRRC's Teaching Center, 2520 Noble Road in Cleveland Heights.

Attendees will learn the common causes of soggy yards, the pros and cons of possible remedies, and which projects are easy for a homeowner to do—and which are best left to the professionals.

Yard Drainage Options is part of HRRC's HouseMender University series, which offers free advice from the experts. Reservations are requested; to make one, e-mail or call 216-381-100, ext. 16.
