Mt. Penn Water Authority’s Source Water Protection committee members, Teresa Christof and Shana Rose, completed an EnviroScape storm water pollution demonstration for the Antietam Valley Girl Scout Troop #1653.
The demonstration showed how rain flows over our streets and carries pollutants such as trash, pet waste, and oil from leaking cars into our community’s storm drains. Our community’s storm drains flow into local waterways, such as Carsonia Lake, Antietam Creek, and the Schuykill River.
The girl scouts also completed storm water pollution drawings for the Schuykill Action Network’s (SAN) Street Art contest. Students in grades 6 – 12 are eligible to participate in the Street Art contest (shown below). Please visit SAN’s website for more information on the contest: www.schuylkillriver.org
