STORM DRAIN MARKING

STORM DRAIN ART CONTEST

Announcing....The 2021 Storm Drain Art Contest!

 

What is it?

 

A new contest that will use 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!  (Deadline for entry: Midnight, September 30, 2021) 

 

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?  

 

 

I've got questions!
