Education and Outreach About Stormwater-Friendly Business Practices
Businesses offer a public face that makes them ideal to help lead local residents towards better stormwater management practices. The links below can allow your town to help local businesses make small, low-cost changes that reduce stormwater pollution. As a stormwater coordinator, you can encourage these changes by:
- Creating your town’s own business self-inspection checklist and distributing it widely,
- Highlighting stormwater-friendly business practices using local media, and
- Adopting and publicizing an Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Ordinance.
