Stormwater pollution is the number one cause of water pollution in Nebraska - it’s caused when pollution from the city washes into the storm drains which lead directly to our waterways without filtration. Volunteers receive a map of storm drains in a neighborhood, clean debris from the drains, and install them with a "no dumping" decal. Volunteers also place educational door hangers to surrounding neighbors letting them know how to prevent pollution. This project can accommodate any size, and the timing is also flexible to the group's preferences. Please use THIS LINK if you are interested in volunteering through our Healthy Waterways Program!
