Youth Employment and Stormwater Management are Goals of Howard County’s (Md.) READY Program in Summer 2012

In summer 2012, Howard County, Maryland (located southwest of Baltimore), the non-profit organization People Acting Together in Howard (PATH), the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, and several other partners will collaborate on a program to employ 40 area young people to learn about and build stormwater-reduction facilities for roofs, parking lots, and other impervious surfaces on private properties in the county.  Other groups assisting in the Restoring the Environment and Developing Youth (READY) program are Maryland Sea Grant, the Center for Watershed Protection (headquartered in the Howard County seat of Ellicott City, with an office in Charlottesville, Va.), and the Parks and People Foundation.
