Scouts, 15 of them, and their parents volunteered to assist the storm water team with the “Drains to Streams, Storm Drain Labeling Project.” This project is part of the outreach initiative under Fort Polk’s Louisiana pollutant discharge elimination system municipal storm water permit to increase environmental awareness across the installation. The scouts labeled about 150 drains across the installation including areas along Mississippi Avenue, Colorado Avenue, Utah Street, Third Street and Corps Road. The labels, which were provided by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, caution “No Dumping, Drains to Streams.” These labels are used to educate the public that storm water drains lead directly to local creeks and streams. The cooperative effort will hopefully discourage people from depositing anything down a storm drain that is not storm water. This project is the first of many programs that will come from the partnership between the storm water team and troop 124.
