Stormwater Public Education & Outreach
Since 2007 Benton County staff has led and/or participated in various local and regional events to share information about stormwater, water quality, and the Benton County Stormwater Program. Check out our stormwater story map to learn more about stormwater features in Benton County: Benton MS4 NPDES.
Stormwater Program staff has learned that the best way to share this information is to get involved at annual events and share stormwater information! These events include:
- Benton County Fair
- Kids Day for Conservation
- Watershed Tours
- Community Meetings
- Association Meetings
- Council Meetings
Benton County staff has tracked participation and interest (current outreach and education events list), in order to improve the education and outreach effectiveness. In addition, county divisions and departments are working to make the community aware of the importance of stormwater quality and best management practices through:
- General and specific facts on stormwater (see Resources section)
- Consultation regarding stormwater management
- Shared understanding of current local and state regulations for stormwater and water quality
These combined efforts are working together to improve awareness and encourage positive impacts to improve stormwater and water quality in Benton County.
