Many people don’t realize that the Storm Drains you see in our streets, yards, and parking lots, flow directly to local creeks untreated and into the Russian River. Have you seen something that has the potential to get into the storm drains or local creek that shouldn’t? Anonymously get the word out with an informational campaign in your neighborhood.
