Of all the unfortunate ways water can be polluted, runoff from storm drains is number-one. To raise awareness about this fact, SeaWorld San Diego partnered with I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) to stencil city storm drains with the exhortation, “Do Not Dump Goes To Ocean” in English and Spanish.
ILACSD assembled the stenciling toolkit and distributed them to SeaWorld team members.
The leading environmental organization in San Diego County, ILACSD was founded in 1954 and, as SeaWorld said, “educates their community to diligently conserve and enhance the environment through outreach, community involvement and example.”
SeaWorld Orlando is also spearheading storm drain pollution awareness efforts, partnering with Keep Orlando Beautiful to inform residents about the issue.
For those looking to help out the cause, ILACSD will be conducting a Storm Drain Stenciling Day Nov. 19.
