Are you Stormwater Savvy? Take the quiz and find out

Many of you have already taken part in the City of Lake Forest’s Park “Stormwater Savvy” online quiz. 

If you haven’t yet, please do so by clicking here. You may be wondering to yourself, but what is the survey for?

Our everyday activities, from car washing to gardening, have a lasting impact on water quality. With our busy schedules, we often don’t have the time to step back and reflect on our impacts on the environment.

As part of Lake Forest Park’s attempt to better understand its citizens and their needs, the City has created a stormwater survey to see where residents, businesses, and individuals who work in the City are in terms of their understanding of stormwater.  
For example, where does it go, how does it get there, what makes it dirty, and what keeps it clean?

A similar survey was conducted in 2010 to fulfill part of the outreach component to the stormwater program. Last year’s survey yielded very interesting results, and the goal for 2011 is to compare the answers to those from last year, as well as identify the important indicators to focus on in the future.

If you have taken the survey, please make sure to ask all of your friends, family, and neighbors to take it, too. 

Results will be posted in mid-October of this year, so stay tuned. Be sure to include your email in the survey so we can keep in contact and update you on programs, volunteer opportunities, and general stormwater information. 

Questions or concerns? Contact Lauren Broudy at the City by email or by phone 206-368-5440.
