Storm Drain Stenciling
A popular method for getting the message out about our effect on our lakes and streams and for getting students and volunteers involved is the labeling of storm drains. The idea is simple: let the public know that when they dump something down the drain, it just doesn't disappear nor necessarily goes through some treatment plant. Often their careless disposal of fertilizers or oil goes directly into a waterbody.
Below are some pictures of storm drain stencils that have been used by groups.
Here is an Eagle Scout project with some great pictures: http://www.earthwardconsulting.com/scouts/eric_ward_eagle/eaglewebpage1.htm
