SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

Stormdrain Stenciling 

Do you have a community group, club, association or friends looking to serve your community? Our stormdrain stenciling program is a great way to volunteer outdoors and help protect our water. Working together, we can get stencil labels protecting VLAWMO's stormdrains, and raise awareness that the stormdrain is direct link to the nearest waterbody.

Keeping stormdrains clear of debris is a quick and easy way to help take care of our water resources. Adopt a Drain is a new program for VLAWMO to track which drains are 'adopted', educate the public on why its helpful, and thank the volunteers who contribute their time and effort. Work solo or with neighbors to adopt your nearest stormdrain(s) today!

Participants will receive seasonal email updates on the program, and are asked to keep track of how much debris is cleared from drains. Call VLAWMO at (651) 204-6070 for more information, or review the flyer below. Upon signing-up, volunteers will receive an info packet with everything needed to get started like a pro.
