YMCA Campers Help to Install Storm Drain Markers in Pottsville

On Thursday, July 28th, SHA worked with the YMCA Summer Camp to put 78 markers that say “No Dumping, Drains to River” beside storm drains along Mahantongo Street in Pottsville.  The markers will encourage residents to think about how stormwater carries pollution directly into nearby creeks and the Schuylkill River.  The campers also helped to hand out tip cards to residents that listed simple actions to reduce water pollution such as picking up pet waste, preventing fluids from leaking from cars, and following directions when using fertilizers and herbicides on lawns.
