What is The Storm Drain Art Contest? 

 

A contest that uses art to educate the public about watershed health. The winners will have the opportunity to paint their creations on designated storm drains in the county!  

 

Why paint storm drains?  

 

As water flows over land, streets and parking lots after a rain event, numerous contaminants including trash, chemicals, pet waste, motor oil, yard clippings, sediment, and fertilizers are collected along the way. These contaminants are washed into storm drains which lead directly to our rivers, lakes, and streams, impacting both water quality and sensitive aquatic ecosystems.

This project will serve to beautify the community and help raise awareness of how we can all reduce the presence of litter and other pollutants in our waterways.

How can I learn more and enter?  

The next contest will be held in the Fall of 2022. Stay tuned to our Facebook or Instagram pages or join our email list (see footer on this page) to be kept up to date! 

 

I've got questions!
