It's a NEW school year and a NEW topic for our annual
Clean Water Works Video Contest
Did you know that most "flushable wipes" really aren't flushable? This year the video topic will be focused on "flushable wipes" and how they affect our sewer system and even our stormwater system. Explore the internet to find more information about "flushable wipes and our sewer system." Create your 30-second public service announcement commercial and submit by April 30th, 2019 at 4 pm.
We're looking to show why pollution prevention is important in Bend and how to prevent sewer overflows into our homes, businesses, streets, and waterways.
