Stormwater Awareness Week - October 7th - 13th




          
We want Stormwater Week to be a regional effort that encourages communities (and the groups that care about them) to raise stormwater awareness via newsletters and social media posts, or with fun and educational events.

Example actions/events might include (but are definitely not limited to):
  • Community or Neighborhood Clean-Ups (litter, streams, stormwater ponds, etc)
  • Native Tree & Plant Installations
  • Rain Garden Construction and/or Maintenance Activities
  • Educational Workshops or Tours (residents/businesses/contractors)
  • Newsletter Articles & Social Media Posts
  • Press Releases
  • Adoption of Community Stormwater Resolutions (see our example here)
Anyone can participate in Stormwater Week (municipalities, townships, schools, watershed groups, and more!).  If you help administer your communities MS4 program, this event will also help meet your requirements for MCM 1 & MCM 2.

Schedule your events now and let us know what you are planning to do, so we can promote it here and through our social media accounts.

Need ideas or have questions? Just send us a message.
