Watershed Program Volunteer Opportunities
Storm drain marking, and inventory of markers
Volunteers are needed to locate areas for storm drain marking within the unincorporated areas of Brevard County, and cities of West Melbourne and Malabar. Markers, as shown to the right, will be attached by volunteers to the storm drains
as a method of helping the community learn about the role people play in preventing pollutants from entering the stormwater system. All materials and safety equipment needed for this activity are provided by Brevard County.
Environmental Education Featuring the Enviroscape
Volunteers can assist with watershed education by showing the connection between people and pollution. Volunteers receive training to use the Enviroscape to conduct an interactive demonstration of the impact pollution has on stormwater.
Following training, the Enviroscape and all necessary materials will be loaned to volunteers for presentations.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, contact the NRMO office at (321) 633-2016 for more information.
Storm Water Asset Mapping Program (SWAMP)
This project involves adding data to our GIS database. The volunteer may be asked to perform office work using ESRI ArcMAP and Google Earth to accurately draw physical points and lines that represent stormwater structures. Volunteers may also use paper
information and transfer the data to GIS by digitizing and assigning basic attributes to structures that can then be used as a layer. Volunteers may also be asked to manipulate other types of Excel / GIS data or create printed maps as needed. Must
have proficient computer skills, basic GIS skills, attention to detail, must be reliable and willing to commit to set work schedule each week, able to work with minimal supervision, attend in-person interview and pass low level background screening.
You will be asked to work a 4-hour shift once a week. Natural Resources employees will provide orientation to department, description of duties and introduction to storm structures and the mapping process.
