Laurel Elementary School has adopted a Clean Water Partnership pilot program set up to prevent runoff on school grounds and other properties throughout Prince George's County.

On Tuesday, the school's Green Team of fourth- and fifth-graders planted pollution-filtering weeds in one of its two new storm water management gardens.

The storm water management gardening project stems from a 30-year partnership agreement between Prince George's County and Corvias Solutions environmental consultants in March 2015, said Tasha Brokenberry, Clean Water Partnership's community outreach manager.
