Pollution Prevention Tips

 
In 2009, UNC-Chapel Hill’s Institute for the Environment and the Town of Chapel Hill's Stormwater Management Division began a partnership under a grant from the Wallace Genetic Foundation to develop water pollution prevention training materials for food service  managers and employees.

Food service managers and supervisors  receive posters, videos and guides when they attend a train-the-trainer workshop.  They may also call Chapel Hill Stormwater Management at 919-969-7246 for presentations.
