Burlington DPW - Rethink Runoff: Learning about stormwater and its effects on our rivers, streams, and lakes is the first step to minimizing the pollutants we drink and swim in. By identifying and understanding how some of our everyday actions can contribute to stormwater runoff and making small changes to how we perform these tasks, we can help prevent water pollution in our communities.

Through community interaction and feedback, we will identify ways to improve our recycling habits while engaging with our community in productive activities during this time of uncertainty.

We’ll announce a new one every Wednesday afternoon until the traditional school year ends in June.
