STEEP Program Marks Drains in Pickens County
Pickens County, along with the cities of Easley, Liberty, and Pickens have collaborated with Clemson University's Carolina Clear program to educate and involve residents in stormwater management. The STEEP program based at the Pickens County Career & Technology Center have been working with Pickens County to mark storm drains in the surrounding areas for the past two years.
The students are given an area in the county to mark the storm drains and working as a team, locate and place markers on the drains. The goal is to educate the community about storm drains and the importance of not dumping hazardous materials into the storm drains. "Only rain goes in a storm drain".
