The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Timmons Group, and SRRN Games Launch New Stormwater Game for Earth Day

Richmond, Va. – April 21, 2014 – The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Timmons Group, and SRRN Games are excited to celebrate Earth Day 2014 with the release of their online stormwater game titled “Stormwater Sentries.” The game, created for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, and promotes awareness of the environmental impact from stormwater runoff into the Chesapeake Bay. Players take on challenges, complete missions, earn money and work to create a sustainable town designed to reduce stormwater runoff.

Stormwater Sentries was designed to demonstrate the impact our decisions have on our private property to local stream health. The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay wanted to create a fun and engaging experience to educate the community on how to make wiser environmental decisions that improve water quality in nearby streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. The game went live on April 10, 2014 and is available on Facebook ( Stormwater Sentries).

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay incorporates individuals, organizations, businesses and governments to coordinate solutions that promote stewardship and protection of the land, waters and residents of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The Alliance has also developed a program dedicated to these factors, known as Chesapeake RiverWise Communities, which focuses their efforts on increasing green living throughout the area.
