CITY OF WARSAW STORMWATER UTILITY HELPS OUT LOCAL STUDENTS
The City of Warsaw Stormwater Utility led a lab for the Environmental Science Program’s aquatic ecology class at Grace College. Through coordination with Dr. Nate Bosch, Director of the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams and the Environmental Science Program, the lab gave college students the opportunity to visit various sites around the City of Warsaw in which the Stormwater Utility is involved.
Bosch explained, “We are excited that the Lilly Center’s effective partnership with the City of Warsaw Stormwater Utility is expanding to college education programs. This is a great opportunity for college students to learn not only about our waterways, but about local government and the greater community.”
For the past few years, the City of Warsaw Stormwater Utility’s educational programs have been focused on elementary students; however, Ryan Workman, coordinator for the city’s Stormwater Utility, recognized a lack of educational diversity and, as a result, plans to broaden the educational scope of the City of Warsaw’s educational programming. “The partnership formed with the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams has only been beneficial; so why end the partnerships there?” stated Workman.
