DURHAM, N.H. -- Do you know where the water goes when it runs down your storm drain? Learn more by volunteering to help monitor Dover's storm drain system with the Great Bay Coast Watch and the City of Dover. Monitoring will include sampling water from storm drain pipes during the day in dry weather conditions.

An introductory class for volunteers will be held at Henry Law Park at 12:00 noon, June 18. Bring a brown bag lunch for a picnic in the park (beverages will be provided). The Butterfield Gym conference room will be used in the event of rain.

This program is part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Storm Water Phase II Final Rule requiring municipalities across the country to improve their storm water systems. Funding is provided by the N.H. Department of Environmental Services.

Great Bay Coast Watch is supported by N.H. Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension.
