Boy Scout Troop 50 puts Medallions on Stormwater Inlets 

 

Boy Scout Troop 50 puts Medallions on Stormwater Inlets

The Boy Scouts of Troop 50, in cooperation with the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium, Charleston County Stormwater and the Town of James Island, installed medallions on stormwater inlets throughout the Town of James Island this past Sunday, March 12th.  Above is a picture of the medallion.  This medallion reminds folks that what goes into the storm drains goes directly to the marshes, creek and rivers around James Island.  There is no treatment for stormwater before it enters the surrounding habitats that are home to fish, crabs, shrimp and oysters as well as many species of birds and animals. 

            As part of the medallion installation program, door hangers were distributed in some areas that go on to explain that pet waste, yard chemicals and automobile fluids, including car wash soap, that go into the street or parking lot drains enter our marshes and creeks.  The best way to protect our important natural habitats is to keep our stormwater as clean as possible.

            The Scouts installed over 100 medallions around the Town of James Island and were in 7 neighborhoods.  This was part of an Eagle Scout Project and we can expect more projects like this until all the stormwater inlets on James Island are marked.

            For more information on Stormwater quality and what you can do to keep our stormwater clean, go to the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium at http://www.clemson.edu/extension/carolinaclear/regional-consortiums/acsec/index.html or call the local Clemson Extension office at 843-730- 5212.
