Brookhaven, GA, November 16, 2015 – The Post Reports – As many as 30 Brookhaven residents showed up on a crisp Fall morning Saturday to assist the City in marking Storm Drains.
You may or may not know that Storm Drains are often used by people to dump paint, oil and other pollutants and those materials eventually make their way into nearby waterways.
During Fall months, like now, you might run across people blowing leaves or pushing other yard debris down the drain which cause pipes to clog and backup.
The markers serve as a reminder the Storm Drains are actually there for a specific purpose, to catch water runoff.
This is an ongoing project until all the drains are marked. If you would like to participate, the City can use the help.
The City says this community service project is:
- Appropriate for all ages and group sizes
- Flexible enough to fit into your busy schedule
- Requires minimal time
- Easy to do
Volunteers simply glue plastic discs to storm drains reminding residents “Only Rain Down The Storm Drain.” To participate, email a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
