Storm Drain Marking
Help Protect Streams & Rivers
Join the fun — enter the Art in Public Places design contest and your design could be selected for storm drain markers around the city.
Fort Collins' 3,000+ storm drains channel rainwater and any debris or pollution in street gutters directly into the Poudre River or Spring Creek.
Treatment plants do not purify the stormwater before it enters the waterways. Pollutants that enter gutters and storm drains go directly into our streams and rivers and may include:
- Soap from car washing
- Oil and grease from car repairs
- Fertilizers and pesticides
- Litter such as cigarette butts and beverage cans or containers
- Paints and solvents rinsed from brushes
- Household chemicals
