MS4 Stormwater Education Resources Available To Local Officials

To help them meet MS4 stormwater pollution reduction education requirements, local public officials can look to Penn State Extension for stormwater education resources.
At their spring 2018 statewide meeting in Harrisburg, and at fall forum meetings in Cumberland, Centre, Montgomery, and Clarion Counties, members of the PA State Association of Township Supervisors were introduced to some of Extension’s educational resources that could help them in this endeavor.
Participants at these meetings learned about the Stormwater Basics toolkit of short videos and fact sheets that can be used as part of a community education program, and participated in a hands-on demo of Extension’s Rain to Drain 4-H curriculum for youth audiences.
Other resources such as help with tree ordinances and plantings, finding local volunteer watershed stewards, and online stormwater best management tools were also discussed.
Extension educators were able to gain valuable feedback from the group on how we can further help them meet their educational needs.
