As required by the Environmental Protection Agency, Birmingham Public Schools provides the community with information regarding its Stormwater Management Program.
Stormwater carries untreated water runoff directly into creeks and rivers and, by doing so, impacts our environment. Improper disposal of waste, such as oil, paint, fertilizer, and pesticides will pollute the stormwater and destroy plants, endanger wildlife and affect drinking water. Never dump materials, including grass clippings, into any storm drain or drainage canal, and be sure to keep any catch basins on your property free of grass clippings and debris.
BPS is committed to the environment and strives to be a good steward of the land within its jurisdiction, using appropriate best practices to contribute to the improvement of water quality within the Rouge River and Clinton River Watersheds where the district is located.
Th district encourages all students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors to get involved through opportunities provided by the local watershed groups, including The Rouge River Watershed and the Clinton River Watershed and the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG).
