“God makes the rain, but we make the runoff.”
Congregations in Anne Arundel

17 congregations are taking action to stop polluted runoff

What are these congregations doing?
- Sponsoring one or more congregation members to attend a Master Watershed Steward (MWS) training at the Watershed Stewards Academy.
- Getting technical, faith-based, and financial support to fix this problem on your congregation’s property through $20,000-$60,000 in stormwater management assistance!
What is stormwater management assistance?
MWS works with Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy to develop a stormwater management plan.
Design and Construction of the plan is paid for through grant funds!
MWS is also trained by the Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake in the spiritual foundations for care of Creation and ways to engage the faith community in Stewardship actions to help protect our sacred waters.
