Storm Drain Marking

Did you know that the stormwater that doesn't infiltrate into the ground or evaporate into the air, travels over our land and drains unfiltered into our lakes, rivers, and streams? In our communities storm drains lead to our local waterways. This is one of the most common misconceptions. These drains do not lead to our wastewater treatment plants. Storm drain marking is a way to pass on this information and encourage proper use of storm drains. It can be done nearly anytime by anyone and is a perfect group or class project. Learn More »
