A $4,371 Ohio EPA environmental education mini grant will help local students continue learning science as they assist the Wood County Solid Waste Management District with stream quality monitoring and storm water management.
Nine projects throughout the state were funded for $35,192.
The grant to the solid waste district will provide sampling equipment to continue the 10-year program for seventh-grade classes in Bowling Green City Schools. Students report their data to the City of Bowling Green to help in select target priority areas for storm water monitoring and enforcement.
The project also includes a "Storm Drains Are for Rain" public awareness campaign that includes inserts in utility bills for 13,000 residents, medallions on 500 storm drains, a "Storm Drains Are for Rain" billboard contest for all Wood County students in kindergarten through sixth grade and National Geographic booklets on pollution and water resources to supplement classroom lessons.
