Businesses, institutions, churches and medical facilities all play a role in protecting our local waterways. Check out these housekeeping tips for ways to reduce your contribution to stormwater pollution. You can also contact the GLRC to partner in educating your staff and customers on pollution prevention.
The GLRC has implementation committees that carry out several tasks related to permit compliance. If you are interested in learning more about our committees, contact GLRC coordinator Amanda Hathaway Frattarelli at email@example.com.
