Storm drain marking serves as an educational tool to remind people of the connection between storm drains and local water resources.
These visual reminders will help make citizens aware that allowing pollutants to enter the city's waterways could have a negative effect on our water quality.
"Storm drains flow into our creeks and anything harmful dumped in these drains can end up in our drinking water supply," said Nicole Eaves, Stormwater Education Coordinator. "The new storm drain markers will encourage everyone to be responsible for our waterways."
runoff can pick up litter, yard waste, pet waste, sediment from
construction sites and other pollutants that end up in storm drains and
can harm our water sources and environment.
