Our Natural Resources team lead Louise says the most pressing need right now is for citizens to help reduce pollution from storm drains. To do that we can supply you with storm drain stencils that say No Dumping—Drains to River.
Many streets have been re-paved, covering the stencils. Contact Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org to get stenciling help. If you live in a neighborhood that drains to a local lake, you can also help by keeping leaf litter out of the drains by adopting a storm drain near you. Simply go to https://adopt-a-drain.org/ to find a storm drain near your home and follow the guidelines on the website. If there is no storm drain near your home, then simply keep your curb line clear of debris from your yard and trees.
