Stormwater cleanup volunteers needed
Rockdale County Stormwater Utility is in need of volunteers to keep Rockdale waters clean

CONYERS - Rockdale County Stormwater Utility is seeking individuals and groups to volunteer to mark storm drains in an effort to keep Rockdale's waterways clean.

The Stormwater Utility is inviting the community to take part in the Storm Drain Stenciling Program by labeling storm drains with provided decals stating "No Dumping, Drains to Streams."

These colorful decals, when attached with a special adhesive to storm drains, remind the general public not to dump or pour anything into storm drains.

Volunteers will be thoroughly trained on the dangers of stormwater pollution and supplied with stenciling kits with instructions on how to label storm drains.

Civic groups, subdivisions, businesses, churches, youth groups, individuals and families are encouraged to participate in storm drain stenciling.

Participation in the stenciling program qualifies Rockdale residents not living in Conyers for a five percent Watershed Stewardship Stormwater Utility bill credit, as well as community service hours for youth who participate.

For more information or to volunteer for the Storm Drain Stenciling Program, contact the Stormwater Utility at 770-278-7134 or
