Storm Drain Marking

Storm Drain Marker

Our storm water infrastructure helps transport rain water to our streams, lakes, ponds, and rivers. When anything other than storm water enters these systems it can cause contamination of our waterways and clogs that could result in flooding. It is important that citizens know only rain belongs in the storm drain. That is why York County started the Storm Drain Marking program. Volunteers can help label storm drains in their community to help others realize whatever goes down that drain can end up in our waterways. 

How to get Involved

  1. Determine the area where you would like to mark the storm drains.
  2. Determine the number of storm drains in that area.
  3. Contact York County’s Stormwater to discuss.
  4. Mark the drain(s)

All supplies are free and will be provided by York County.  

Fact: Stormwater is not treated! That means that whatever enters our storm drains and/or drainage ditches is not filtered and and ends up in our waterways.
