Some new artwork will have an important message on the streets of Sturgeon Bay starting on June 18. The Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department is working with the Boys and Girls Club of Door County to do Storm Drain Stenciling throughout the city. Conservationist Brian Forest says the project is designed to create awareness that stormwater drains feed directly into surface waters and the channel of Sturgeon Bay.
The stencils will read “Dump no waste. Drains to lake”. Forrest says there can be a big negative environmental impact if grass clippings, pet waste, and fertilizers are not disposed of properly. The Strom Drain Stenciling is part of the Celebrate Water campaign being conducted all around Door County.
