New CWFNC Video: Take Action on Pollution

This spring, Clean Water for NC once again teamed up with our partners at Green Opportunities, a community-based development organization in Asheville providing “green collar” job training and placement programs, on our Urban Community Streams program! This time, we made a video to help YOU learn to love your urban streams and “take action on pollution” where you live. Watch the video:

Green Opportunities Training Team graduate William “Skip” Wynn worked with us to reach out to local partners and residents, plan and carry out a stream monitoring curriculum with the Green Opportunities job training members in Asheville, and develop materials to continue outreach and education about the value of urban waters.

We created two new brochures about how to improve the health of nearby streams – one for outreach to business owners, and another for local homeowners and renters. Request a copy of these brochures to use in your own neighborhood outreach.

While filming the video, we helped document and reported a unique pollution event affecting Nasty Branch in May.  Along with Asheville Greenworks team, we will continue to follow up with state regulators to make sure this urban stream gets the attention it needs to be a vital and clean resource for the community!

Thanks to all our partners in Asheville and beyond for all you do to restore green spaces and community pride in our NC urban streams! Check out our Urban Community Streams page for more information on this program. Questions or comments about the video? Let us know…we’d love to hear from you.
