Stormwater Runoff Awareness Through Youth Watershed EducationPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Stormwater runoff carries pollutants from impervious surfaces and travels, untreated, to surface water bodies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency updated the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit in 2016, including more extensive public education and outreach requirements. The project goal was to spread public awareness and education by creating a 5th grade Watershed Curriculum for the Massachusetts towns of Shrewsbury and Holden that complies with both the Massachusetts Next Generation Science Standards and the new MS4 permit. We hope the Watershed Curriculum is a viable resource for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition and helps Massachusetts municipalities comply with these standards.
