Fighting Plastic Pollution in Prince William County Waterways
Spring is Here!
A Good Time to Keep our Waterways Clean!
Water Quality Volunteers Make a Difference!

Spring is here, a time for outdoor activities regardless of the challenging conditions posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
How much water do we drink daily?
Where does our drinking water come from?
By keeping a pond or a waterway clean in the community, we can make a difference in the neighborhood. Water as a natural resource has no boundaries as shown by the water cycle.

Join the Conservation District's Water Quality Volunteers to promote clean waterways and water quality awareness in Prince William County.

What is your pledge for the Environment ?
* To reduce the use of plastic water bottles?
*To reduce the use of plastic grocery bags?
*To volunteer under the District's Water Quality Programs and promote water quality awareness for the present and future generation?

We can make a change!
**The COVID-19 Protocol will be followed!
Volunteers must register online before attending this event.
