Public Education

Help spread the word about actions people can take for clean water and about CRWP at county fairs and other community events.

Storm Drain Stenciling

Help us spread the word and encourage your neighbors to keep trash, leaves and grass clippings out of the gutter and away from storm drains by stenciling the message “No Dumping – Drains to River (or Lake)” by storm drains in your neighborhood.  You can also pass out door hangers with information about actions people can take to reduce stormwater pollution.

CRWP has the stencils, paint and safety gear for you to use.  Just be sure you’ve cleared it with the Public Works department of the City you live in first!


Help CRWP raise much needed funds to support general fund activities such as responding to citizen concerns, providing educational presentations and programs.
