Cal Poly Club Storm Drain Painting

On March 2nd, 2013, Cal Poly Surfrider Foundation teamed up with the San Luis Obispo Surfrider Foundation Charter for the painting of 26 storm drains in Grover Beach.  Fourteen Cal Poly SF members worked with the Righetti surf club, a local high school surf club, to go about painting the storm drains that lead to the ocean. The City of Grover Beach provided paint and brushes while Brad Snooks, chairman of the SLO SF Charter, provided the stencils. The stencils said “No Dumping! Flows to Bay.” Local residents were enthusiastic and happy to see the project being implemented. Coverage was also had by the local news media, KSBY News. This is the Cal Poly SF Chaters first project as an official Surfrider Foundation college club.
