A community activity that helps protect our watershed and promotes better understanding of stormwater and pollution prevention.
The City of Edmonds offers free assistance and use of stenciling supplies to: Teachers, Students, Scouts, Youth Groups, Seniors, Businesses, Non-Profits….ect.
The City of Edmonds has over 7000 storm drains that allow rain and other water runoff to make its way eventually into Puget Sound and other bodies of water. Whatever enters the drains is discharged directly into these waters, by way of pipes, ditches or natural watercourses, all without benefit of treatment.
Stenciling next to storm drains allows citizens to be involved in protecting clean water in your watershed and habitat for fish and wildlife. The message is highly visible and discourages would-be dumpers from polluting.
Here’s how to get involved in this activity:
Contact the City’s Public Works Department at (425) 771-0235, extension 1603.
