Marsh Trash Clean Up
The Town would like to thank Omatic Software, a local business, for volunteering to clean up trash from the marsh along the Cooper River this week! Volunteers collected 12 bags of trash, a bait bucket, a fire extinguisher, several plastic tarps, ropes, and other items. The town has a litter clean-up partnership program that can help your group clean up an area of your choice or we have locations you can choose from. Contact the Town’s Stormwater Program at stormwater@tompsc.com for details!
Rain Barrel Sale
Homeowners can help protect water resources and fight flooding by collecting rainwater that falls on their roof. This helps stop it from becoming stormwater runoff that can pick up pollutants and add to flooding problems. Collecting and reusing rainwater can also lower monthly water bills.
