Superior Stormwater is a project by the Environmental Services Division of the Public Works Department for the City of Superior, Wisconsin. The blog is a way to bring information about stormwater and related topics to the public. Please let us know if there are any topics you'd like us to cover!

Volunteers are wanted to help stencil local storm drains in Superior
The City of Superior would appreciate it if local
organizations would help with stenciling storm drains. Environmental
Services Division will provide all the supplies needed to mark the drains with
the message “Do Not Dump - Drains to Stream. “ Two general
public times are being announced but we can also work with groups to fit a time
that works for them. By having only rain and melting go down storm
drains our local streams and Lake Superior will be cleaner.
The public times include
Thursday, June 13 at 9 AM. Meeting place is Fairlawn Mansion
Thursday, July 18 at 1 PM at Central Park pavilion on the west side.
The stenciling session duration will be for about an hour
and a half. Individuals, families, youth groups, adult groups, seniors,
church groups, work place teams, etc are welcome. Please RSVP so
that we can prepare the materials needed. Children must be 9 years
old. We would like to mark 200 drains this summer and early
fall. Storm drain stenciling can only be done during dry weather. By
having only rain and snow melt go down storm drains our local streams and Lake
Superior will be cleaner.
