Volunteering to improve Hot Springs' water quality
Storm Drain Marking Program
The stormwater division has combined two EPA mandated requirements of Public Education and Outreach and Public Participation and Involvement into a single program. This combined program is a great way for our city's residents to get involved and volunteer and help bring awareness to stormwater quality in Hot Springs. A simple marker at a storm drain will grab attention of tourists and residents, and hopefully discourage water pollution. The marker reads, "No Dumping Drains To Lake." Storm drain marking is a great way for people of all ages to get involved in the community for a great cause.
Currently Student Coordinator Dusteen Sieck, leads a group of Cutter Morning Star High School students in participation with the city for this event. Frontier Girls Troop 221 also actively marks drains within the city limits. Recently EAST Lab students from Cutter Morning Star finshed a volunteer effort installing over 1300 markers throughout the city. We appreciate the time and effort of all who assist us in helping to conserve the environment. Please contact Stormwater Coordinator Jessica Johnson at 321-6743 for more information on how you can get involved.
