Broadway students break a sweat to improve water quality

May 22, 2019by ncdea

WEST VIRGINIA, Shenandoah Valley SWCD – Horticulture students at Broadway High School left the classroom on Tuesday for a hands-on lesson on water conservation which will leave behind a lasting impact in the community.
Plants and bushes were placed at a new bioretention site next to the school’s parking lot.

“This serves as a conservation practice to detain and slow down the water and help filter out any pollutants or sediment, bacteria, etc., that’s in the water before it’s released to the natural channel,” said Megen Dalton, a district manager with the Shenandoah Valley Soil and Water Conservation District.

“Not only is this important for Broadway High School students,” Dalton said, “but it’s important for them to understand the impact on the community and for other community members to see and understand stormwater and practices such as this.”
