Stormwater Runoff

Fourth graders are discovering that the storm drains on 3rd Place  lead directly to our waterways.

Johanna is capturing spring water that has run down the street.  Students will test to see if its  pH has changed.

Don't worry.  Johanna is taking pictures and blocking traffic as students  look into the storm drain.

Meanwhile, other students are surveying 3rd Place to see if there are signs of pollution.  And to see if some of the stormwater  could be absorbed, filtered, or slowed down.

Then students designed their own "artificial" wetlands to help keep stormwater runoff from sweeping all sorts of pollutants into our nearby waterways.
