Storm Drain Marking

Friends and family joined the GVC of NYWEA Young Professionals Committee during a drain marking event on June 21, 2018. Sponsored by the Monroe County Stormwater Coalition, the committee took to the streets of neighborhoods that the coalition indicated as target areas. Informational flyers were handed out informing residents that their stormwater systems deposit into local waterways as well as the consequences of dumping waste down the drains. The flyers encouraged them to be mindful of the drains and keep potential pollutants at a safe distance. Additionally, drain markers reminding residents to keep their storm drains clean were glued to each drain in the neighborhood.
