The City of Richardson, as part of a regional effort of over thirty metroplex communities, is putting a message in the form of a round plastic marker, next to storm drain inlets on the streets in your neighborhood. The marker, which states “This Drain for Rain, Flows to Creek, Don’t Dump” is a reminder to everyone that nonpoint source pollution will end up in our waterways if allowed to enter the storm sewers. Unlike our home’s sanitary sewers, the storm drains discharge directly to the city waterways, without treatment.
Contact the Health Department for information on the Storm Drain Marking for Volunteers initiative.
