How can I educate my employees?
  • Incorporate stormwater drainage education into the staff's training programs.
  • Prepare brief, informative presentations that can include speakers to introduce key topics. It is important to educate the employees about how practices at work can affect stormwater. Regulations can be discussed and how they will affect everyday activities, such as maintenance.
  • Post good housekeeping signs wherever they are appropriate. Make items such as drip pans and spill kits readily available at these locations to prevent spills and leaks from coming in contact with stormwater drains.
  • Consider a recognition program for staff who regularly practice environmental stewardship, teach others by their actions and are active in developing pollution prevention solutions.
