The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection invites residents interested in the health of Montgomery County’s streams to attend the second annual Community Clean Water Summit on March 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veteran’s Plaza, One Veteran’s Place, Great Hall, Room 1. The goal of the summit is to help residents understand how their commonplace actions may contribute to stormwater pollution where they work, live and play.
Stormwater pollution can result from ordinary actions by residents who may not be aware that they are affecting the health of streams, such as littering or ignoring trash, over-fertilizing lawns and not picking up after pets.
Register for this free event at http:cleanwatersummit.eventbrite.com, space is limited.
Light lunch will be provided and door prizes include: an REI 3 season tent, rain barrels and more! (must be present to win).
