Storm Drain Marking Program

Storm Drain Marking is a course of action that alerts citizens of the connection between their yards and nearby waterways.  Citizens are warned of the dangers of misusing storm drains as garbage disposals by the following message, which is displayed next to the storm drains in their streets: “Only Rain Down the Drain”.

This is a great activity for any volunteer organization, including: schools, scouts, churches, block clubs, and service organizations (e.g. Kiwanis).

The City of Sammamish is promoting the storm drain marking program throughout the city. For more information about the program email Lisa Werre or contact her at 425.295.0573.
