Public Outreach Program
Another activity of the division is providing educational initiatives to educate the public about stormwater pollution prevention and the effects of illicit discharges/illegal dumping in our waterways. The division creates a variety of outreach marketing materials which includes brochures, flyers, advertisements, newsletters, press releases, presentations, direct mail and articles for publication. Materials are distributed at events, presentations, public displays, libraries, schools and meetings. The division also produces public information videos and public service announcements for local television and radio stations.

Outreach Materials:
The NPDES permit requires the Stormwater Management Division to track annually the number of brochures, flyers, newsletters and outreach materials distributed to the public. The annual NPDES permit also requires the County to document the population reached by the various public outreach programs that the County is required to implement. Numbers are shown in the graph linked above for the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 reporting periods.

Presentations:
Presentations are given at homeowners associations, civic associations, schools and libraries to educate citizens about ways to prevent Stormwater pollution and improve water quality in Pasco County. By making simple changes in daily activities, citizens protect the environment. In the graph below you can see the results of a survey to citizens who attended the presentation “Preserving our Waterways”  during 2015-2016.  Five presentations with 73 attendants through the County were accomplished.  At the end of the presentation, people were requested to answer five basic questions to help us evaluate this outreach initiative.
