Painting Sewer Grates

  • Location
    Crosslake, Minnesota

The Problem

Our community has many lakes and rivers. One problem that we noticed through out community mapping is that the any runoff from the streets goes down the sewer grates and straight into our lakes and rivers. The water is untreated. We want to make the public aware that what they do on the streets and in their yards could be affecting the lakes and rivers.

Our Plan

We will write a letter to our county to see if we could get permission to stencil the sewer grates that lead to lakes. We want to paint the words "No Dumping, Leads to Waterway" by the sewers.
