Teen River Service Saturdays: Storm Drain Marking and Cleanup

Curbside storm drains can be a channel for pollution. Unaware that they empty directly into nearby waterways, many people dump oil, paint, trash and other pollutants into these storm drains. After heavy rains, storm water runs off our streets and parking lots into storm drains, picking up leaves, debris and litter along the way. These substances clog the pipes causing streets to flood and can cause harm to aquatic life

The storm drain marking program is a fun environmental activity for students and service organizations. Using the free storm drain marking kits, groups place an important water pollution message on drains in their community.

We will supply all the marking and cleanup materials… we just need YOU and your help!!

What to bring….
Water
Hats
Sunglasses
Heavy duty gloves (if desired)
Boots or closed toe shoes (rain boots, work boots, or waders are extremely helpful)
Completed waiver form (if under 18), email Emily Floore for a copy
