Storm Water Drain Markings

Traveling around town you may  have come across these markings  located at storm drains. The markings are meant to educate and remind people that storm drains are for rain only since the drains distribute the water to the nearest body of water without treatment. More information regarding what stormwater is, why it’s a problem and what you can do to help reduce stormwater pollution can be found at http://www.ristormwatersolutions.org/index.html.

Volunteers from APC coordinated by Save the Bay installed nearly 400 storm drain markers in critical locations identified by Public Works.
