300 storm drains in St. Charles County are now a little bit smarter

Greenway Network is working with St. Charles County Department of Health and Environment to get 9,000 storm drains marked in unincorporated St Charles County.

In 2014 monthly marking events took place on the first Saturday of each month, weather permitting.  We had about 30 volunteers who marked an estimated 300 storm drains over the summer.

An educational flyer describing the importance of no dumping into storm drains was also placed at all residences along the routes where storm drains were marked.

Greenway Network will continue the event in 2015.  Anyone can join in the fun! This is a great activity for a small group to do on their own time.  Greenway Network makes kits available to community groups and residents.

Look for more information about dates and times for 2015 events on the Greenway Network webpage.
