    No Dumping, Drains to River

    Storm drain stenciling

    On Saturday, October 10th, a group of students led by Arthur Wallis, Water Quality Extension Intern, painted stencils around stormdrains on USU Campus as a reminder that they are connected to the rivers.  The project was started over concerns about what was being dumped around campus.  The pollutants drain into our local rivers and streams and cause water quality problems that affect drinking water and wildlife.
