Storm Drain Marking and Art Programs

Storm drain markers help educate the public about our storm drain system. In Montgomery County the storm drains go directly into our rivers. Stormwater carries pollutants such as litter, pet waste, fertilizers, leaking autofluids, or anything that ends on the ground directly into our waterways through storm drains. The storm drain markers are installed quickly and easily using permanent adhesive. Help change behavior by organizing a storm drain marking project. Get support from the County?s Storm drain Marking Program to remind people that street litter flows directly into local waterways and organize your own storm drain marking event. Materials are provided via the Storm Drain Marking program.
