Public Education Materials - Water Quality
|This is the new table top display. Call SWMPC to borrow it! Click to see larger picture.|
Through the Public Education Program of the Phase II Stormwater Program, SWMPC has developed several fact sheets, news articles and other items that can be utilized. Please feel free to download and reproduce these materials. The items below can be used by anyone, but were developed by the Southwest Michigan Planning Commission to satisfy the Stormwater NPDES permit for Berrien and Cass County's communities.
SWMPC has a new table top display that your municipality or organization may borrow to set up in a public place such as a city or township hall, library, community festival, etc. Call (269) 925-1137 x1525 to reserve the display for your next function or meeting.
These resources were created with funding by the
Southwest Michigan Water Quality Partnership
