Community Invited to Virtual Presentation on Watershed Public Education Survey Results

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) and Greater Lansing Regional Committee for Stormwater Management (GLRC) are hosting a virtual meeting for stakeholders and members of the public interested in watershed management to learn about the latest trends in public knowledge of and practices for protecting water quality in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties.


Join us virtually on Monday, March 11th from 11:00 a.m. to noon for a presentation on the results of GLRC’s fourth Greater Lansing Regional Water Quality Education Survey. The survey has been conducted every six years since 2006 to determine the effectiveness of environmental education campaigns, identify knowledge gaps, and help guide the GLRC’s outreach activities moving forward. Over 600 residents throughout the Grand River, Red Cedar River, and Looking Glass River watersheds participated in this year’s survey and shared their views on water quality and actions taken to protect our local waters.


The survey included questions asking how important water quality is to residents and how it affects their actions regarding lawn care, septic system maintenance, household hazardous waste disposal, and vehicle maintenance. It also determined the demographics of residents and how they prefer receiving information and ascertained their knowledge of stormwater pollution prevention measures.


The GLRC is administered by Tri-County and is comprised of 17 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) communities within the tri-county region. The committee works together to guide the implementation of their stormwater programs to reduce stormwater pollution and improve watershed health in both their local communities and across the region.


The virtual presentation of the survey's results will be followed by an opportunity for questions and answers. RSVP by March 10th at mitcrpc.org/events.
