    IV.B.1.b.1 The Johnston Public Schools have an ongoing Environmental element within their Science curriculum. The Town Engineer is scheduled to meet with the Assistant Superintendent and other representatives from the schools to discuss the existing program and how the Town can work with them to provide additional materials and activities

    regarding storm water. The Town’s Storm Water Management Plan is posted on the Town’s website, and there will be updates to the website regarding storm water issues,

    including a page hi-lighting the goals and activities of the program. The Town will also implement a pollution prevention campaign aimed at discouraging residents from feeding waterfowl and encouraging residents to pick up after pets and deposit litter in proper receptacles. Working with the Town’s Nuisance Officer, we are notifying residents of the

    current Town ordinances relating to storm water issues.

Because of a lack of records regarding this program, the current administration cannot judge the status or effectiveness of any strategies previously adopted.
