Storm Water Employees Named Bag Heroes

City Storm Water employees have been chosen as Bag Heroes for the month of August by the Texas Coastal Bend Surfrider Foundation. Members of the department strive to inform the public about their role in preventing the introduction of trash, grass clippings, plastic bags and hazardous wastes into the inlets. One example is by handing out educational materials and free reusable shopping bags at events around the city. Their message for everyone is:
“City of Corpus Christi Storm Water encourages all citizens to skip the plastic and use reusable shopping bags to keep storm drains and local waterways clear of plastic bags!”
