Do you know where this leads?

Answer: Directly to the river or some other body of water
Storm drains do not go to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When pet waste, salt, soap, oil, fertilizer or pesticides enter storm drains they end up in the river. This impacts our aquatic ecosystem, harms fish and wildlife, and reduces water quality.

Get Involved in Yellow Fish Road™

Make a difference by painting yellow fish next to storm drains and delivering handbills to explain how water contamination can be reduced. Volunteers have marked over 700 storm drains and delivered over 4,700 handbills in Red Deer.
