Clinton River Watershed

Lamphere Schools - Stormwater Program

Stormwater carries untreated water runoff directly into nearby creeks and rivers and,by doing so, impacts our environment.  Improper disposat of wastes, such as oil, paint, fertilizer, and pesticides will pollute the stormwater, destroy aquatic life, and affect our drinking water.

The City of Madison Heights, The Lamphere Schools and Madison District Public Schools are working together to promote stormwater awareness to our employees and students and are committed to practicing sound stormwater management practices to protect water quality.

We are required by state and federal stromwater rules and regulations to educate as well as perform best management practices at our facilities. These practices include (to nmae jus a few): cleaning our catch basins, streets, and parking lots to remove sediment and debris, properly storing chemicals to prevent spills, utilizing earth-friendly fertilizers and pesticides onour turf, and ensuring that any development or redevelopment on our properties follows current state and federal guidelines for stromwater retention.

The Lamphere Schools is committed to the environment and to the observance and adherence to all local, state and federal stormwater rules and regulations.
