Strathmore Elementary School Stormwater Practice Upgrades

As a part of the County’s effort to protect our waters, Strathmore Elementary School was selected for a county facilities project to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams. County Facilities projects generally involve installing small-scale stormwater practices to capture water from rooftops, roadways, and sidewalks during storms. County Facilities projects incorporate many of the same practices as Green Streets projects.

Residents surrounding the Strathmore Elementary School project area can also help reduce stormwater pollution by installing stormwater practices on their property through the County's Targeted RainScapes Neighborhood program.

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for staff, students and parents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project.  Go to the “Project Schedule and Documents” tab for more information on public events and project schedules.
