Discharges through the stormwater network affect the water quality of urban streams, estuaries and the sea.
Nelson is subject to rubbish on beaches and streams as has been recently demonstrated by clean ups in the Nelson area which have collected large amounts of rubbish.
Isolated environmental incidents related to stormwater management in the Nelson area have also been reported, including fuel dumping to stormwater, which have a high impact on biodiversity and may cause significant damage.
Council has previously provided printed information targeted at the industrial and trade sector to inform stormwater education but has not provided similar information for the general community.
Council has no specific stormwater education programme currently focussed on community, non-industrial workplaces or schools.
Council seeks to improve the community awareness of the difference between wastewater and stormwater, including that stormwater drains straight to the nearest waterway.
Schools and Early Childhood Centres are focal points of the community and children are more likely to engage with, and take home messages around stormwater discharges.
A creative and innovative plan is needed to engage the Nelson community to reduce their impact of contaminants on water quality through discharges to stormwater.
