Stencils Online Carries a Variety of Storm Drain Stencils
Storm drain stencils are a crucial tool for improving environmental protections and increasing community awareness. According to the EPA, labeling storm drains, " . . . can raise awareness about the connection between storm drains and receiving waters and can help to deter littering, excess fertilizer use, dumping, and other practices that contribute to stormwater pollution."
What are storm drain stencils?
Storm drain stencils are used to mark areas on or near storm drains so as to prevent pollution and urban runoff. A common myth is that the water, materials and other liquids that flow down storm drains ultimately travel to sewers or wastewater treatment centers. This is false. The reality is that storm drains often lead directly to bodies of water. The usage of storm drain stencils informs communities and is incredibly helpful in deterring motor oil, fertilizers and other polluting elements from damaging bodies of water.
