Many people mistakenly believe storm drains go through water treatment facilities and don't realize that anything that passes through the drains dump directly into bodies of water (for us it's the Puget Sound). Water, debris and nonpoint source pollutants (leaves, soil, litter, fertilizers, pesticides, street residues) contribute substantially to a decline in water quality. Communities all over the world are working together to teach others how to help keep our waters clean by putting up signs near storm drains.
- Whale watching field trip this Friday! Remember we have an extended day. We will be leaving school by 7:00 and will return around 5:30.
