Project: Clean Water
Cal Poly Storm Drain Painting
Ocean Dumping Awareness
In order to bring awareness to the fact that trash littered may lead to the ocean, Cal Poly Surfrider has painted 26 ocean-bound storm drains. Stencil over the drains read "No Dumping! Flows to Bay." Ocean storm drains were selected around the City of Grover Beach for this project.
