  • Storm water that runs off of our lawns and driveways travels down street gutters into our storm drains and inlets.


    It is conveyed through pipes into our ponds and streams.

    Anything that gets into the storm water or is dumped into these inlets eventually will end up in our ponds and streams.

    Storm drain stenciling with the words "Dump No Waste! – Drains to Stream" is a way to educate and warn the public. Carol Stream allows volunteers to stencil our storm drains with environmentally friendly paint.

    If you wish to arrange a volunteer effort for storm drain stenciling, please contact our Engineering Department at (630) 871-6220.

    To find out more information, The Conservation Foundation maintains a web page about storm drain stenciling.
