What is Storm Drain Marking (the "Yellow Fish")?
Storm drain marking is a program designed to heighten public awareness of the fragility of our streams and creeks. What we put either directly into our storm drains or onto our streets or driveways where it will wash into the storm drains, directly ends up in our creeks and streams, and into the Inlet. Toxic substances can kill the fish and other living creatures in our streams very quickly. By marking the storm drains with a yellow fish and by passing out brochures about the process to area residents and businesses, we are increasing the awareness level of those in the area.
