May1Thank you to the 88 youth volunteers that took to the streets on April 16th for Storm Drain Marking, as a part of Global Youth Service Day. These volunteers, from YMCA, scout groups, and the 4H Club, marked a total of 304 storm drains and handed out educational door hangers to 1,063 homes. Through their hard work, our volunteers reminded residents living in Northwood, Sylvania, Washington Township, Waterville, and Oregon that storm drains lead directly to the nearest ditch, creek, or waterway untreated. To help us all remember, a good rule of thumb about what should go down a storm drain is “if you wouldn’t drink it, don’t pour it!” If you know a group that would be interested in participating in Storm Drain Marking throughout the summer, please contact us to get scheduled. Thank you again to our dedicated youth volunteers!
