At the April 3, 2019 Rostraver Township Board of Commissioners monthly meeting, the Commissioners recognized 4th grade students from Rostraver Elementary for creating educational artwork from a science lesson about Rostraver Township being an ‘MS4 Community’.

Rostraver1 May 2019
(Bottom Row L-R): Students from Mrs. Barkey’s 4th grade science class- Benito Pesi, Ben Bowman, Rhylee Howlett, and Baylee McDaniel. (Top Row L-R): Commissioner Gary Litvany, Commissioner Devin DeRienzo, Francesca DeCarlo, Commissioner Ray Iacoboni, and Commissioner Gary Beck

MS4 stands for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. It is a program regulated by the EPA and DEP.

Annually employees from Rostraver Township visit Mrs. Barkey’s 4th grade science classes to do a demonstration on the water cycle and discuss simple things we can do in our daily lives to limit pollution ending up in our waterways. The students were asked to create artwork showing some of the simple we can all do to make a difference:

The Commissioners also honored Francesca DeCarlo with a certificate of appreciation for her hours of service as an intern. One of the tasks Miss DeCarlo did was to transform the 4th grade student’s artwork into educational MS4 posters that will be displayed throughout the township. DeCarlo will graduate from the University of Pittsburgh in Greensburg this spring with a degree in Communications. The Rostraver Township Board of Commissioners wishes Miss DeCarlo success in her future endeavors.
