Education and Outreach

The Education and Outreach control measure requires implementation of a public education program to distribute educational materials to the community, or perform outreach activities about the impacts of stormwater discharges on local waterbodies and steps to reduce stormwater pollution. An informed and knowledgeable community is crucial to the success of a stormwater management program.
