Stormwater Quality Poster Contest


Annual Stormwater Quality
Poster Contest

In the Town of Warrenton and Fauquier County, storm drains run directly to our streams and tributaries that are a local source of drinking water.

Stormwater runoff can contain trash and pollutants that travel untreated to local waterways.


To help spread awareness about stormwater pollution, the Town of Warrenton and Fauquier County

is holding the 2nd Annual Stormwater Education Poster Contest.

Interested Teachers and Organizations are encouraged to visit www.warrentonva.gov to view additional subject theme information.
