Storm Sewers are looking good!

The community has an opportunity to see wonderful talent from local artists and to become more aware about storm drains. Six artists were selected to each paint beside one storm drain. Go check out the art and learn more about stormwater pollution prevention.  Anything that enters a storm drain, in most cases in Superior, will head out directly toward a stream heading to Lake Superior.
