Action Research’s Poo Points Program was awarded an Outstanding News, Information, Outreach, and Media Project at the 2018 California Stormwater Quality Association’s (CASQA) Annual Conference!
This program, created in collaboration with the County of San Diego’s Watershed Protection Program, encouraged rural dog owners to scoop their dog’s poop at least once a week in areas of their yard with the highest water pollution potential. Messages were delivered by local youth groups who encouraged their neighbors to make a difference in their community. This program was well received and highly successful in changing public behavior to keep pet waste out of the stormwater system.
Our team is thrilled to receive this award and proud of our work protecting San Diego County’s waterways from runoff pollution!
