Show some love to city’s storm drains

Christopher Powell, 11, (left) and Nicholas Adams, 10, are shown participating in a community service project for the City of Federal Way. The city’s Surface Water Management Division has developed a storm drain curb marker public education and involvement program designed to increase public awareness. All city storm drains carrying oil, pesticides and animal droppings flow into wetlands, streams, lakes and/or Puget Sound with little or no treatment. Volunteer groups can volunteer to glue the colorful plastic markers adjacent to catch basins in residential neighborhoods. This program is available through the end of October.
