Barrels by the Bay

Barrels by the Bay




Megan is a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy and also a Coca-Cola Scholar, one of Resolution’s Pathway Partners.  Her venture, Barrels By the Bay, will help install rain capture barrels around the Annapolis area and then D.C., Arlington, and Baltimore.  The barrels will be painted by students who will simultaneously learn more about water management and the Chesapeake Bay.  The water captured by these barrels will contribute to limiting flooding and stanching contaminated run-off into the stressed Bay ecosystem.  The goals of the venture are to educate the community about water conservation, inspire students to preserve world resources, contribute to the community’s sustainability, and save water within the community.
