Adopt-A-Stream Forms and Information
Storm Drain Marker Program
Storm Drain Marking can be done by anyone! Volunteers mark storm drains in their neighborhoods or anywhere in the city where storm drains haven't been marked. In addition, volunteers place informational door hangers on neighborhood doors to let residents know about stormwater runoff pollution. This one-time activity is a powerful educational tool for our community.
To volunteer please use the volunteer form: Stormwater Volunteer Form
Invite a Speaker
The Stormwater/Erosion Control Program can make speakers available. Presentations can be made to community groups, businesses, for public events, and in the classroom to talk about stormwater pollution. We can staff a table filled with educational materials. These presentations can be customized to accomodate any time period you choose.
For more information on how you can protect water quality, invite a speaker to meet with your group.
