How cool is this? Earlier this year, fifth grade students at Petersburg Elementary participated in a contest to see who could design the best stormwater drain for the city. The purpose was to remind residents that anything that's dumped in the streets or on lawns can make its way into the South Branch River and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. This fall, the city of Petersburg, located in the Potomac Valley CD, will install the new signs on 61 stormwater drains throughout the city. The winning design was done by Isaac Snyder, second place was Isaac Nazelrodt and third place was Jenna Burgess. The school was also highlighted by the U.S. Dept. of Education on their Green Ribbon Schools Best Practices Tour for 2014.
