On March 31, 2021 the Rostraver Township Board of Commissioners recognized fourth grade students from Rostraver Elementary for submitting artwork on Rostraver Township being a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) community. It is a program regulated by the EPA and DEP to address water pollution.

The students were tasked with creating posters to show simple things we can do in our daily lives to limit pollution ending up in our waterways. The four students honored for their work were:
Jocelyn Cramer - “See beauty in each drop!”
Lucy Eisengart - “We are saving the Earth!”
Noah Spedaliere - “It’s the water you drink!”
Jordan Jerome and Lilah Steeber
The winning posters are on display at the Rostraver Township Municipal Building and the Rostraver Public Library.
These small acts can make a huge impact for the safety and cleanliness of our community’s water as stormwater pollution is the primary source for water pollution. Pollutants flow into streams or storm drains that empty into our waterways like the Monongahela and Youghiogheny River.
