Indian Creek, which flows through Nampa, Idaho, is a tributary of the Snake River. The EPA awarded the City of Nampa two grants, a small Urban Waters grant and a Special Project Environmental Justice Grant to develop a public education and outreach campaign on stormwater management that focuses on the Hispanic community (the Boise/Nampa/Caldwell area is home to one of the fastest-growing Hispanic populations in Idaho). The Langdon Group was selected by the EPA to manage Nampa’s Stormwater Program Team in working to increase the community’s awareness and participation concerning stormwater impacts on water quality in Indian Creek and other local water bodies. TLG is working closely with the City and community members to reconvene, manage, and facilitate the Stormwater Program Team, an advisory committee charged with developing community outreach activities, including a summer youth program and a demonstration rain garden.
