'Stormwater Faire' set for April 5

The City of Newburyport and the towns of Newbury, Rowley and Salisbury are sponsoring the second annual “Stormwater Faire” from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 5, at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Headquarters on Plum Island Turnpike.

This event is for elementary school children and their parents.

The major theme is prevention of water pollution by taking care not to let pollutants be washed into local water bodies by stormwater. This will be explained by demonstrations and exhibits, and there will be opportunities for related fun activities for the young attendees.

This event is in partial compliance with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandate.
