Protecting water at a community level
Since Freshwater developed the Master Water Stewards program in 2013, 342 Stewards have been certified and are volunteering their time for watershed districts, cities, and environmental groups; participating on city and local government boards; influencing policy; and improving the health of our waters. To date, they have:
- Connected with thousands of people through outreach and educational events
- Installed or planned more than 100 projects, including rain gardens, rain barrels, cisterns, a dry creek bed, and a permeable driveway
- Prevented millions gallons of polluted stormwater runoff from entering our lakes, rivers, and streams each year!
