On December 12th, Cub Scout Pack 60 along with some help from family members and friends, participated in the Annual Clean A Stream Day. Pack 60 has been participating in this program for the past 5 years. The annual clean a stream day is part of the city MS4 Stormwater requirements that provide the opportunity for the community to be involved with stream clean ups. Pack 60 cleaned a detention pond in Main Street Commons Subdivision. This provides an opportunity for children in the community to receive firsthand experience in what trash and debris collects in our stormwater structures. During the event we discussed the purpose of detention/water quality ponds and how they work along with pipe systems and ditches. We also discussed how we can eliminate liter and reduce pollution to protect our rivers and streams. By educating our youth we hope to minimize the effects of trash and other debris in our stormwater. Thanks again to Pack 60 for their participation. If you are interested in participating in our fall event, please contact the stormwater or public works department. The City would like thank the members and parents of Cub Scout Pack 60 for their participation. Please see the attached pictures of the December 12, 2015 event.
