Keep Laurens County Beautiful is seeking artists to transform up to four storm drains into public works of art. The goal of this project is to grow awareness to keep our storm drains clear of trash and pollution that ends up in our local streams.
In addition to their artistic value, painted storm drains serve as important educational tools to address stormwater pollution and the common misconception that our storm drains lead to sewer treatment facilities. In reality, anything that enters a storm drain goes directly into the nearest river, lake, or stream. This includes litter, auto fluids, yard chemicals, pet waste, and other pollutants.
