Fun Fact: Everyone in the United States lives in a watershed and every watershed is important to the Economy and Environment.
What are Storm Drain Markers? The answer is simple, Storm Drain Markers are a way to mark stormwater drainage systems and catch basins that lead to waterways or other bodies of water. These natural bodies of water include rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, ponds, oceans, and bays. The purpose of marking these drainage systems is to educate the public to not leave trash, chemicals, and other harsh pollutants laying around that could find its way into a Storm Drain and out to a waterway.
Stormwater Management is in almost all cities, counties, and states throughout the United States, as well as abroad. Real Estate Development is at an all-time high in recent years which has increased the need for a strong Stormwater Pollution Management Plan. These management plans that are incorporated by builders and developers who are constructing real estate developments, both residential and commercial. Many Stormwater Management Plans are required by law. State and Federal funding is often available to support these plans.
Several communities have implemented a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program to help protect the environment around them. Almetek’s Metal Storm Drain Markers have helped many organizations and municipalities achieve their marking goals. The best part of these programs is that they work with local volunteers to help install the Metal Storm Drain Markers throughout the community.
Almetek also supplies Fortune 500 corporations and top universities throughout the USA with storm drain markers to identify drainage sources in parking lots, stores, factories, corporate offices, and campuses. The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for monitoring regulations and enforcing rules. Most factories and manufacturing facilities are required to maintain a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program because of the chemicals and trash that are part of the water runoff from their building.
