Nampa School District Partnership


In order to enhance stormwater education and outreach efforts the City of Nampa formed a partnership with the Nampa School District. The Nampa School District educates students and the broader community on how they can reduce pollutants of concern in our surface waters. In return, the City of Nampa provides funding for water quality related educational materials, teacher stipends, and technical resources.

Walk on the Wet Side

Students from Nampa High School's Environmental Club learned all about storm water and how it affects local water quality. These students then spent an afternoon sharing this knowledge with students from The Nampa School District elementary schools.
