Recruiting for the 2018-2019 service year starting on August 6th, 2018

The mission of the City of Oak Ridge Stormwater team is to enhance the quality of local waterways, address water quantity issues in the city, and enrich natural habitat in local urban areas.  Stormwater addresses issues such as water quality, runoff control, and the creation of runoff solutions- such as rain gardens, rain barrels planting of trees, and permeable surfaces. Stormwater staff hopes to facilitate discussion on best stormwater management practices through public education, outreach and research. Broadening public support and involvement is key in keeping local water sources healthy and sustainable.
