Lucketts Ruritan and youth clubs build environmental awareness

The Lucketts Ruritan Club has collaborated with Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District (LSWCD) to promote environmental awareness of the role stormwater management plays in protecting our waterways.
Stormwater seeps into the ground and is captured by plants. Water also flows across impervious surfaces (such as asphalt or concrete) to storm drains. Some storm drains discharge water to streams allowing pollutants a direct path to drinking water supplies. Some discharge to storm water ponds allowing for infiltration. Lucketts is in the Clarks Gap Watershed which resides within the larger Chesapeake Bay Watershed. On April 27, 2019 from 2-4 pm participants will learn where the stormwater drains in Village Green, Lucketts, discharge and will physically mark stormwater drains to indicate “No Dumping-Drains to Waterways” with markers provided by LSWCD.
The Lucketts Ruritan are committed to conservation of a healthy environment by promoting awareness, responsibility, and participation! This Ruritan project has multiple partners, including Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District, Lucketts Elementary School Rudy Junior Youth Club, and the Lucketts Girl Scout Troop 751. The Lucketts Ruritan support community engagement and the education of our youth through these hands-on experiences. Please feel free to join us and participate.
