The Yellow Fish Road™ Program, has one simple message - anything entering the stormdrain flows directly to the local water body untreated. Participants paint yellow fish next to storm drains and distribute fish-shaped brochures, to remind residents that only rainwater should be going into the storm drain.
Anything that goes into our storm drains either flows into stormwater ponds, which flow into the Sheep River, or goes directly to the Sheep River untreated. Litter, salt, soap, pesticide, herbicide and fertilizer from our lawns, driveways, sidewalks and roads goes directly into our river. This waste and chemicals can have a negative impact on the aquatic ecosystem, not only by harming fish and wildlife, but also reducing drinking water quality for humans.
