WEST HAVEN, Aug. 20, 2019 — Resident Stacey Giaquinto participates in the city’s new Storm Drain Marking Project on Sunday, Aug. 18, at Campbell Avenue and Leete Street.
The project, which began a day earlier with a workshop offered by the Sustainable West Haven team, aims to build awareness of the connection between what we put onto our yards, driveways and streets and what ends up in the water we use for recreation and as an environmental asset.
Everything that goes into a city storm drain empties into a stream, river or Long Island Sound. Project organizers hope that stenciling the drains in high-traffic areas will help educate people.
Individuals, families, clubs and neighborhood groups are asked to consider participating in the project. With 5,000 storm drains, West Haven has many opportunities to take part in the effort.
