Markers next to storm drains help raise awareness about the link between the storm drain system and water quality. Pesticides, garden chemicals, soap from car washing, pet waste, and oil from automobiles all get washed off lawns, driveways, and streets down gutters and into our strom drains and eventually into our waterways.

If you know a group that would be interested in helping mark storm drains, such as a local scout troop or club, email alaina.robarge@ontswcd.com or call (585)396-1450.

Participating Communities Include: Town of Farmington, Town of Macedon, Town of Ontario, Ontario County Highway Department, Town of Victor, Village of Victor, Town of Walworth, and Wayne County Highway Department.
