[171] Volunteers needed for Oct. 19 campus cleanup event

The MTSU Stormwater Program is looking for student volunteers to help protect the water supplies on campus during an Oct. 19 cleanup event on campus.

A campus cleanup is set from 1-4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, near the detention ponds along Rutherford Boulevard on the east side of the MTSU campus. Participating students are advised to wear old shoes/boots with socks and long pants. 

Students should gather at the Rutherford parking lot across from Greek Row and should look for a tent and volunteer signs in the parking lot. Volunteers will be cleaning up the grassy areas around the detention ponds that collect the campus’ stormwater runoff.

The MTSU Stormwater Program strives to raise awareness about the importance of water quality and to reduce the amount of pollutants that flow into the water supply through runoff.

For more information or questions about these events, contact Amanda Sherlin with the MTSU Stormwater Program at 615-904-8575, by email at or visit the website
