Municipality Membership Benefits

The White River Alliance has a lot to offer you and YOU have a lot to offer us!  Get Involved!!

Municipalities make up a critical element of our membership. We work to regularly increase the benefits that we provide these key members. Municipalities can participate in the White River Alliance simply as regular members or they can also opt to join our regional MS4 public education program for an additional fee.

In 2009, the White River Alliance launched its regional education efforts through the coordination of several area MS4s. Any MS4 in the Upper White River Watershed is eligible and welcome to participate in the program. The objective of the program is to pool financial resources and then work collaboratively through the Alliance to implement a high-quality public education and involvement program. This coordinated approach allows for unified messaging and buying power. The yearly program deliverables are dependent upon the number of participating MS4s (total budget), as well as the objectives and desires of the committee of participating MS4s. If you have questions about this program and its fees please contact shaena@thewhiteriveralliance.org. Please consider joining us as a member or also as an MS4 education partner!
