Community Services in Fresno County:
The 2015 Clean Stormwater Grant application have been released by the District’s Board of Directors. Completed applications due by November 13, 2015. Read more about which organizations and what types of projects are eligible, and download the application.
Clean Stormwater Grants establish District partnerships with community groups and local schools by funding, in whole or in part, projects that protect or enhance water resources or educate citizens about storm water quality.
The District also funds 5th grade field trips to Scout Island and Lost Lake, and small grants to help with storm drain marking volunteering (see below). The grants fund transportation and docent fees for all 5th grade students at your school.
Storm Drain Markers
“No Dumping – Protect Our Waters” is a simple, but important message that builds public awareness that pollutants flow across our city into gutters, storm drain inlets and storm drain pipes, which lead to ponding basins. Your school or volunteer group can help spread this important message by participating in the District’s Storm Drain Marker program. Groups can volunteer to install markers at storm drains in their neighborhoods. The District will supply everything you need: safety equipment, markers, adhesives,and instructions. Contact Patrick Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The District has available staff and materials for presenting to many kinds of groups:
- PowerPoint shows adapted for community and business settings
- Videos about the local storm drain system and storm water pollution prevention
- Watershed models for student interactive lessons
- Training materials to assist businesses in storm water quality regulatory compliance
