[ARCHIVED] Middle schoolers to stencil local storm drains

Students from Haine Middle School, led by environmental science teacher Alice Stebbins, presented Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors with a graphic explanation of why safeguarding local water sources is important to local communities. At the Board’s February 26 meeting, approximately 20 students using a PowerPoint presentation made the case for raising public awareness about the dangers of pollution entering the environment through stormwater inlets. The students proposed, and the Board adopted, a proposal to have students stencil warnings at various catch basin openings in the Township alerting people to the connection between dumping and the water quality of their local streams. Stormwater, unlike wastewater, is directed into nearby streams without treatment; contaminated stormwater can create significant damage to a community’s aquatic life and compromise its drinking water sources. Mrs. Stebbins and her students have been consistent supporters of Cranberry’s environmental programs over the years. For more information, contact Township Waterworks Coordinator Tim Schutzman at
