Clean Water Program

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Stacy James and I am the Clean Water Program Coordinator for Prairie Rivers Network, an Illinois organization devoted to the protection of streams statewide. I am writing you today about an opportunity to participate in our upcoming construction site storm water patrol training workshop. I am contacting you in particular because you have expressed interest in this training in the past, or you are a contact person for a watershed/environmental group that might have members interested in this training. We are offering the training because soil erosion from construction sites is a leading cause of the impairment of Illinois streams. We will be offering a training to all interested individuals on the morning of Saturday November 11 in the Village of Aurora. A flyer is attached with more information. I would appreciate it if you could forward this email to others in your organization who might be interested in this opportunity. Please note that an RSVP is requested. Thanks very much, Stacy
