Storm Drain Stenciling

Stormwater is excess water that has fallen from rain or melting snow and ice that flows into the storm drains in cities and municipalities. Pollutants such as garden fertilizer, soapy suds from washing your car, or other icky substances such as paint or oil can find their way into these storm drains.

Once reaching the storm drains these substances flow directly into the Cannon River and endanger the natural ecosystems of the watershed. At Clean River Partners, we host volunteers for storm drain stenciling to remind communities within the Cannon River Watershed to be mindful of what they are letting drain into the river.
