Keep Our Waterways Healthy

In 2019, the Summit Soil and Water Conservation District (SSWCD) aims to promote watershed awareness and protection strategies, which increase the public’s knowledge of the impacts of non-point source pollution.  “Runoff Reduction-Slow it Down, Spread it Out, Soak it In” is an educational campaign targeting the general public and homeowners with a message that connects the consequences of their landscaping practices to the health of their watersheds, which include s the Ohio River and Lake Erie.  It will, also, provide tools that they can use to help reduce the stormwater runoff that carries pollution.  For more information, visit SSWCD’s informative website:  https://sswcd.summitoh.net/education/ms4-community-outreach-program.
