[ARCHIVED] Boy Scouts Participating In Storm Sewer Stenciling Volunteer Project

Geneva Boy Scouts will be getting the word out this weekend - literally - about the importance of protecting the Fox River from illegal dumping.

Boy Scouts will be stenciling messages such as "Dump no waste, drains to river," on Geneva storm sewer inlets from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, weather permitting. The project, which is a City volunteer opportunity, will take place north of State Street (Route 38) between Anderson Boulevard and Bennett Street (Route 31).

The messages are being stenciled on the storm sewers to discourage people from dumping hazardous materials that would eventually drain into the Fox River.

For more information about storm sewer project, call the Geneva Public Works Department at 630-232-1551. Additional City volunteer opportunities are posted on the City's website.
