Be a Volunteer
Be a Solution to Stormwater Pollution!
Stormwater Management has programs designed to increase public awareness in the City of Jackson concerning stormwater quality issues. Programs will be available for all school age groups, colleges and universities, neighborhood groups, civic organizations, non-profit/profit organizations and church groups.
If you or your group is interested in participating in future stormwater volunteer programs, please complete the form below or call Wendy Braxter-Rhyne at 731.425.8217.
Stormwater volunteer programs include:
Water Quality Monitoring
Participants collect and analyze water samples, evaluate stream habitats and aquatic biological communities and make inventories of streamside conditions.
Stream Clean-up and Monitoring
Participants volunteer to walk the length of a stream or river, collecting trash and recording information about the quantity and types of garbage that has been removed.
Participants agree to include stormwater education in their classrooms, clubs, groups and/or organizations. Stormwater Outreach materials will be provided by Stormwater Management.
Participants become the primary caretaker of a stream, creek or river to study, clean up, monitor, protect and restore.
