Protecting the Watershed with Storm Drain Markers

Garbage In-Garbage Out. That works for watersheds as well. The storm drain markers are a friendly reminder to residents that what you put in your neighborhood drain, makes it’s way to the bay. The storm drains are not connected to treatment centers so the household chemicals, fertilizer and motor oil and even lawn clippings, waters bottles and pet waste collect in feeder creeks, rivers and ultimately Estero Bay. Lee County’s Natural Resources Division and Keep Lee County Beautiful are working with communities in the watershed to install these reminders across Lee County. They can provide the materials and equipment to help communicate this important message to your community. For more information and to get involved in your community, go to Keep Lee County Beautiful at www.klcb.org/storm-drain-marking.html or Lee County Natural Resources at www.leegov.com/naturalresources.
