Storm Drain Art Waste

Help spread the word about the connection between our streets and our streams by painting a storm drain in your neighborhood!

When it rains in Baltimore, trash and pollutants on our streets are carried into the storm drains and directly to our streams, harbor, and the Chesapeake Bay. Storm drain art is a fun and colorful way to engage your community, brighten your neighborhood drains, and raise awareness about the importance of working to keep our streets clean.

These projects are perfect for community groups, scout troops, student organizations and any other residents who want to see healthy communities and waterways in Baltimore.

With the help of our amazing volunteers, we stenciled 35-storm drain on Boston Street in the Baltimore Canton neighborhood during the fall of 2012. These stenciled drains inform the public that everything that enters a storm drain flows untreated into a nearby waterway.
