Public Education

The City of Salem, in association with Virginia Tech, developed and administered a survey on stormwater drainage. The survey was used as an indicator of resident knowledge on the issue of stormwater pollution. The survey was conducted in a few different locations so that the survey sample would be representative of Salem. The surveys were given out at a local Kroger Store, the Salem Farmer's Market, the Salem Library, Salem's Children Festival, and through the Salem City School System (students brought the surveys home and parents filled them out).
