|Scouts learn about stormwater management|
|The group discussed various stormwater management techniques|
|Girls took home a handout card|
The girls talked about a volunteer project: Installing storm drain markers in Three Oaks Association and other streets near their homes.
- Storm drain markers help educate the public about our storm drain system.
- In Montgomery County the water that enters a storm drain goes directly into our rivers.
- This stormwater carries pollutants such as litter, pet waste, fertilizers, leaking auto fluids, or anything else that ends on the ground.
- These pollutants go directly into our waterways, and ultimately into the Chesapeake Bay.
