In an effort to curb storm water pollution, the City of Lake Forest Park is taking new actions in and around town.

At the Anniversary Party on Sunday, June 19, you may have noticed little white storm drain labels being promoted at the City's booth. 

This program, which will encourage residents to go out into their neighborhoods and label storm drains, aims to foster awareness that whatever goes down the storm drain goes directly into our water systems.

In addition to storm drain labeling, the City is trying to spread awareness through an even broader campaign. Now seen on the Public Works Fleet, "only rain down the drain" vehicle magnets have been created to remind and encourage us all to keep our water systems clean.

If you're interested in signing up for the storm drain labeling program and winning prizes for your efforts, email or phone Lauren Broudy, Environmental Programs Intern, 206-368-5440. 
This is a great way to help your City, protect your watershed, and build relationships within your community.
