Stormwater Study at NE Middle School

Northeast Middle School (NEMS) & the Audubon Neighborhood Association (ANA) were recently awarded a $9640 grant from the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) to study the feasibility of a storm water management project on school grounds. ANA is also contributing an additional $2000 to the study, which will be undertaken by a consulting firm.

Once the study has determined the feasibility of storm water run-off reduction measures, ANA and NEMS intend to apply for an action grant from MWMO to fund the implementation of a project. NEMS students will be involved in both the feasibility study and the proposed implementation, lending a significant educational component to the process.

This project was inspired by the larger MWMO-funded storm water mitigation project undertaken at Edison High School.
