Jacob Denton's Eagle Scout Project: Stormwater Markers

Eagle Scout candidate, Jacob Denton, Troop 1712, partnered with the City of Beaufort, the Beaufort County Stormwater Utility, and Neighbors for Clean Water to mark storm drains in historic downtown Beaufort. Jacob and his troop hope to make citizens and visitors aware that stormwater, which can carry pollutants, flows directly into our waterways via roadway storm drains. 

Beaufort Soil & Water Conservation District Volunteer & Associate Commissioner, Carol Murphy, worked closely with Denton and Boy Scout Troop 1712 to teach about them about stormwater and the importance of protecting our waterways. 

If you are interested in marking storm drains in your community please contact us for current volunteer opportunities.

Thank you to all of the partners involved!
