NCPCA CBE/CCRIC project – storm drain marking – June 5, 2010

Here is event information I recently received and am passing along.

The Committee for a Better Environment (CBE) and the group Citizens to Conserve and Restore Indian Creek (CCRIC) are hosting a Storm Drain Marking Project this Sat., June 5, 2010, 8:00am to noon. Volunteers will meet at HollywoodElementary School (9811 49th Avenue).

Here’s what’s required of volunteers:

1. Walk, bike, skate, or, if absolutely necessary, drive through designated streets and follow a County map where storm drains are supposed to be;

2. Clean off the area of the curb where the marker will go; and

3. Use adhesive to place the marker on that cleaned spot.

4. Mark the location on the County map where you really found the drain. (This is because we aren’t sure the County map is accurate.)

5. Place door hangers describing this project—and the importance of not dumping in the drain–at the surrounding houses.

Children are welcome with a responsible adult.

Let us know if you want to help (which is not required as it is fine to just show up) or get more information, please call Vicky (CCRIC) at 240-354-9503 or Janis (CBE) at 240-888-6972.
