Now is the perfect time to get involved with protecting our freshwater resources with volunteer events, free training and education classes and family-friendly activities throughout the year!

The CRWC assists communities that must comply with the NPDES Phase II stormwater discharge regulations. Communities located within the Clinton River watershed that own or maintain any structure that conveys stormwater to the Clinton River or Lake St. Clair must comply with regulations outlined in the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permit. CRWC’s Stormwater Education Program aids with MS4 environmental compliance through the collaborative Public Education Plan (PEP). However, the Clinton River Watershed Council believes fulfilling permit requirements is not the only reason to educate the public about water quality. CRWC also provides community programming, k-12 education, citizen-science programs, educational resources, stewardship events, and more as part of the Stormwater Education Program.
