The Town of Fuquay-Varina has implemented a public education program to educate the community about the impacts of stormwater discharges on local water bodies and the steps that can be taken to reduce stormwater pollution.
The Town has targeted several pollutants for educational needs such as sediment, litter, illegal dumping, improper disposal of waste, and nitrogen.
Employee Litter Sweep
The Town holds an annual Employee Litter Sweepto promote public awareness of one of our biggest pollutants - LITTER.
Through community events, school outreach, and Lunch and Learn events, the Town educates the general public, private development, and businesses on all things stormwater.

The Town also creates educational materials for inclusion in utility mailings and for distribution at community events. In addition, the Town's newsletter, Focus on Fuquay-Varina, contains lots of stormwater-related articles. If you are interested in obtaining educational materials, contact Jennifer Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Town currently is a member of the Clean Water Education Partnership (CWEP). The resources provided by the CWEP membership help the Town get additional stormwater information into the hands of the public.
