Storm Drain Stenciling Project

For more information about Adopt-A-Stream or to volunteer please email Brian.Sterner@gwinnettcounty.com.

Water Pollution

In Gwinnett County all stormdrains lead to streams, that means any pollution that falls on your yard, sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, or road could get washed right into a stream the next time it rains. This includes oil and antifreeze from cars, cigarette butts, and grass clippings.
The County provides stenciling supplies to volunteer groups to label storm drains. Supplies include stencils, paint, gloves, and maps of drains.
