Oct. 22, 2014

The MTSU Stormwater Program is offering two upcoming opportunities for students to volunteer their time to help protect the water supplies on campus and in the surrounding community.stormwater logo

A campus cleanup is set from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27, near the detention ponds along Rutherford Boulevard on the east side of campus. Participating students are advised to wear old shoes/boots with socks and long pants.

Students are asked to gather at the Rutherford parking lot across from Greek Row and should look for a tent and volunteer signs in the parking lot. Volunteers will be cleaning up the grassy areas around the detention ponds that collect the campus’ stormwater runoff.

The next day, on Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 1 to 4 p.m., a cleanup will take place at the spring beside the Oaklands Historic House, 900 N. Maney Ave. in Murfreesboro.
