Copy: Storm Drain Marker Program
Protecting Our Waterways 
7262011_122615_0.jpgIn 2009 the conservation commission took up the call from DEP mandating that all towns put into place a Storm Water Management Program. The program is designed to help protect our waterways. Under the direction of then, commission member Joseph Mylen a team of dedicated volunteers answered the call.
  
The scope of this project included marking approximately 874 storm water drains. To meet this challenge Joe divided up the neighborhoods and actively solicited volunteers. The SDM program is now more than 90% complete.
    
The commission recognizes and thanks the volunteers who participated by placing markers on storm drains including Tanya Guttierro, Laurie Mylen, and Boy Scouts Troop #104.  Patrick O’Dell earned his Eagle Scout rank as he led his fellow troop members (pictured below) to install over 675 markers!
  
The remaining 10% of the storm drains are scheduled for completion during the 2011 Summer season.
