SWPPP stands for Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.
M.E. 5th and 6th Grade students are “hired” as interns to study and improve the problem of storm water pollution on the Mission Estancia campus and the surrounding community. The interns learn about their watershed, the impact of our actions, and common pollutants.
Interns attend weekly Staff Meetings to study the pollutants that run off their campus into the storm drains and are challenged to create and implement Best Management Practice solutions.
At the end of the program, interns present their experience to the larger community to spread the work and extend the impact of their work. Mission Estancia SWPPP Interns are making a big difference for our environment! Learn more at swpppinternship.com
