Rain Barrel.2. Rain Garden.3. Storm Drain Stenciling My !dea for manage Storm Water runoff **Storm Drain Stenciling** Why is storm water runoff a problem? Storm water can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly to a lake, stream, river, wetland, or coastal water.Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged untreated into the water bodies that we use for swimming, fishing and providing drinking water. Explanation of my !dea Roof tops, sidewalks, driveways and patios do not allow rainfall to infiltrate into the soil. These impervious areas increase the amount of runoff from urban areas which can cause flooding and carry pollutants to surface water. Rain gardens can capture runoff from these areas and reduce the effect of flooding and runoff pollution. In addition, rain gardens provide many visual benefits, including diverse plantings of flowers, grasses and ornamental plants; berms that add height, contrast, and texture to level areas; and the potential to include landscape features such as stone, or other features for a pleasing garden.Rain gardens add an aesthetic and functional feature to a yard or landscape, are relatively inexpensive and can be installed by a homeowner with minimum training.

Storm drains were designed to be the fastest and most efficient way of getting rainwater off streets. Unfortunately, the water that flows into your storm drain carries trash and sediment from the street, nutrients in the form of fertilizers, and toxic in the form of pesticides, household cleaners, gasoline and motor oil. All of the water in the storm drains ends up in your local stream or river. 1. Scrape area using wire brushes to remove rust and dirt. Drop cloth in front of drain.2.
