Did you know that Stormwater is the No. 1 leading cause of today’s water pollution?

February 11, 2016

Did you know that Stormwater is water that runs off roofs, driveways, and streets into our storm drains? On its way, stormwater picks up chemicals and pollutants that contaminate our waterways. The Environmental Protection Agency has found that stormwater (non-point source pollution) is the number 1 leading cause of pollution in today’s streams, rivers, and lakes!

Georgia River Network’s mission is to protect and restore Georgia’s rivers and one way to accomplish this is by educating people about how they can make a difference. We want to make sure you are aware of the Stormwater Program in your community! Contact them to find out ways that you can help manage stormwater runoff into our rivers and streams. Every little bit makes a difference!

We also want to give a SHOUT OUT to the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management Program for galvanizing hundreds of volunteers on the 2016 Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service to lend a hand cleaning up 14 sites across Athens-Clarke County!
