Stormwater runoff is precipitation that runs along paved surfaces carrying pollutants, down storm drains and into bodies of water. The lack of treatment for stormwater runoff is a major cause of water pollution. The United States Environmental Protection Agency released a new Permit in April 2016, containing requirements for stormwater management that Massachusetts municipalities must meet. The goal of this project was to educate residents on the impacts of stormwater runoff by creating a branded promotional campaign, and educational materials in the form of two toolkits for local schools and events. We hope our toolkits will be used by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition to educate their communities.
