The District’s Storm Drain Marking Initiative

Collaborative Solution for Communities (CSC) Clean Teams have joined the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) in the ecological fight to promote awareness on the importance of DC storm drains. Clean Team crews received training facilitated by DOEE on the effects of storm drain pollution and the District’s storm drain marking initiative. As a result, CSC operated Clean Teams are able to place markers on the drains in their services areas; markers serve as a visual reminder that drains directly affect our creeks and rivers. The Clean Team  will also distribute door hangers in the area to remind citizens that rain washes garden chemicals, pet waste, motor oil, and other pollutants from our yards, driveways, sidewalks, and all areas of land into our waterways.
