Stencil storm drains
What is storm drain stenciling?
Marking a message next to a storm drain educating the community about stormwater pollution.
Why should people be concerned about what enters a storm drain?
Because anything that is flushed down a storm drain is not “treated” before it reaches a stream or river. This means that oil, antifreeze, paint, grass clippings, household waste, pet wastes, or any other waste on streets and sidewalks goes directly into a nearby stream, river, or lake. The next time you wash your car on your driveway, consider where the water goes.
