The Education Committee is the state’s largest regional stormwater education partnership. The group oversees the outreach and education activities of the Alliance, including the award-winning Clear Choices Clean Water program. Comprised primarily of representatives from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s), the committee functions as a co-op wherein members pay an annual fee in return for the opportunity to help develop, brand and use stormwater-specific education materials, programs, and messages. By leveraging pooled resources, the group is able to create better and more strategic ways to help municipalities meet state stormwater permits than if each opperated alone. Rounding out the committee are natural resources educators from across the watershed.
Highlights of the Education Committee’s work include the creation of the Clear Choices Clean Water pledge program; professional development workshops for teachers, contractors and planning professionals; attractive print materials for distribution at events; and the development of the 2-year old White River Festival. The committee is chaired by Jason Armour, Fishers Department of Public Works. If you’re interested in being part of the committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
