Storm Drain Stenciling Program

Storm Drain Stencil

As a result of the SWQMP, the University, in cooperation with members of the student body, has been labeling storm water inlets in an effort to prevent illicit discharges by raising public awareness. The program includes a variety of techniques to label storm water inlets: New castings are being purchased with cautionary imprints that identify the inlet as a storm drain, and specially designed stickers are being placed next to existing inlets.
