Did you know that West Virginia is one of six states in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This year, Gov. Tomblin, along with the Governors of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and the mayor of Washington D.C., signed the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement, establishing goals, outcomes and management strategies to guide the restoration of the Bay, its tributaries and the lands around them.

Charleston Stormwater Program

The drain on the top was taken in Charleston, and one like it can be found on most street corners around. This is stormwater pollution, water picks up everything it comes in contact with; trash, oils, dirt, cigarette butts, etc., note the sheen in the water. Luckily, this isn't going directly into the river, it was caught in a combined storm/sewer drain so the water goes to the Sanitary Board and the trash is sucked up by the street department. When you see a drain with the marker pictured on the bottom, water that flows in does not go to the Sanitary Board, it goes directly to the river. Never dump into one of these and if you see someone doing this, report it to the City of Charleston's Stormwater Department. Our water is our most precious resource.
