As a major part of the Virginia Trees for Clean Water Grant, 200 hardwood and herbaceous shrubs will be planted in the fall (late November- early December) at the Public Works Administration Building (located in the Wayne Hills District) with the goal of improving onsite water quality. Volunteers are needed to make this project a success.
The deep root systems of the planted trees and herbaceous shrubs will increase the absorption of rainwater, minimizing sediment and pollutant loads. Waynesboro is unique as its water resource is fed by naturally occurring springs and is host to the South River; both require preservation to benefit the health of citizens, streams and rivers.
