Storm Drain Marking Program

Did you know that the water that flows down the street and into the storm drain empties directly into local waterways, including Puget Sound, without treatment? Your group can help improve water quality in the Key Peninsula-Gig Harbor-Islands Watershed by participating in the storm drain marker program. The markers include the message "Only Rain Down the Drain" to remind people that what goes down the storm drain can result in pollution of our waterways.

This project is appropriate for individuals and groups with participants age six and older. The kit includes markers, adhesive, and instructions to install markers. Kits will be issued while supplies last. If this sounds like the project for your organization, contact Tiffany O'Dell with Pierce County Surface Water Management at (253) 798-2468.
