Pontchartrain Conservancy is hosting Storm Sweep as a month designated to clean up the Lake Pontchartrain Basin this May and to promote education about storm preparedness. Hurricane season is on the way, and we intend to be prepared! Together we'll remove trash and debris so that our catch basins can adequately route stormwater out of our neighborhoods and our waterways can be litter-free! Once you register, we will email you the locations and dates of our cleanups happening around the Pontchartrain Basin by the end of April! You can choose the cleanup location that best fits your schedule or participate in multiple cleanups. You can also sign up as an individual or family and pick your own location to clean up in May.
