Local Group Raises Awareness to Storm Drains

Updated 11 months ago


A small group of people in Bangor are trying to make a big difference.

Bangor Area Storm Water Group making their way around the city on Saturday.

The group has been handing out pamphlets and stickers to raise awareness of what goes into Bangor’s storm drains.

They say that fertilizers and other hazardous materials can end up in run-off water, and cause harm to local rivers.

Elyse Dill, coordinator for the event says, “There are safe fertilizers, there are things you can use organically, and there’s always something you can do as a person to make a difference.”

The group says that there are seven impaired streams in the area that are affected by contaminated run-off.
