Stormwater Awareness Week

October 1-7 is Stormwater Awareness Week! The goal of this week is to teach all residents and businesses that any pollution left on roadways, sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots will drain directly to our rivers and streams. Simple actions can improve water quality and reduce stormwater runoff. You can take one or more of the following actions to help make sure that clean streams start right here in Franklin County:

  • Pick up trash in your neighborhood or local park.
  • Plant native plants and trees.
  • Install a rain garden to collect stormwater runoff.
  • Properly dispose of chemicals and hazardous waste
  • Mulch leaves on your grass to help soil conditions.
  • Clear debris from storm drains!
