The City of Kirkland Public Works Department seeks volunteers (individuals or small groups) to apply pre-fabricated rubber decal markers to storm drains in yet-unmarked areas within the City. There may be storm drains in your neighborhood that need marking.
These decal say "Puget Sound Starts Here: Only Rain Down the Drain" and serve as a reminder to residents that all storm drains flow into streams and lakes, and in order to prevent the pollution of our natural resources, hazardous chemicals should not be poured into storm drains.
Please note that dry weather is required for this opportunity. We provide you the plastic decal markers, special glue, gloves and safety instructions for adhering the markers and a map of drain locations. You do the volunteer assignment at your own convenience, subject only to dry conditions.
