WMEAC has been monitoring the news related to the spread of COVID19. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, program participants, and community.
We recognize that we have a responsibility to do our part in slowing the spread where possible. As a result, we are canceling rain barrel workshops through May.
The COVID-19 outbreak is rapidly evolving and this closure may be extended. Updates will be posted over social media.
Communities can take action to manage storm water and improve water quality. WMEAC wants to help West Michigan communities take this step by providing low-cost rain barrels and workshops on how to set up those rain barrels. Rain barrels have been proven an effective and easy strategy for managing community storm water issues and improving water quality. Through its rain barrel education programs, WMEAC provides low-cost rain barrels to the West Michigan community as a means of addressing water conservation and pollution issues in West Michigan. As part of the cleanup of the Alger Ravines area, WMEAC is hosting two workshops for those who live in the Alger Ravines area. These events are open to the public. The cost for a rain barrel and the components are $50 dollars for non-neighborhood residents and $30 dollars for neighborhood residents.
