Partnerships for a Cleaner and Greener Saint Paul

Storm Drain Stenciling Education Program

We're proud of the relationships that we've developed with organizations in the non-profit sector such as Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR).  You can join us by getting involved with FMR this season by stenciling storm drains in Saint Paul. For more info go to FMR's Stenciling page.




Using paint and stencils, volunteers mark storm drains with the message, “Keep 'em Clean Drains to River” and distribute doorhangers to neighborhood homes and businesses.
