”The Corvias and Junior Achievement partnership is a great example of what’s possible when the public and private sectors come together to make the community a better place,” said Ed Grenier, President and CEO, Junior Achievement of Greater Washington. “These stormwater retrofits inspire students to understand both the environmental and financial implications of future choices, giving them a look at ways they can save money in the future and ensure a brighter, cleaner future in our region.”
Benefits include a decrease in maintenance spending as a result of cost-saving stormwater collection and re-use, as well as the promotion of environmental awareness. The goal of this program is to provide students a glimpse of the work being instituted into the county through the Clean Water Partnership.
The project’s design and construction was completed by Minority Business Enterprises, Bradley Site Design and Green Forever, furthermore showcasing the CWP’s commitment to working with the small minority business community.
The unique partnership provides a great example of the private sector, government, and public school system coming together to help equip the youth of Prince George’s County with a sense of financial readiness and environmental stewardship.
