UpStream Art is a new project that will give local artists the opportunity to express themselves with a semi-permanent public art mural on an outdoor storm drain!
Why do storm drains need a face-lift? UpStream's webpage gives the answer:
"Many residents have a misconception that the storm drains are part of our sanitary sewer system that lead to the wastewater treatment plant. With this misconception...pollutants are disposed of via storm drains, [and] they end up in our waterways."
This event is patterned off of the successful Storm Drain Reveal in Springfield, Missouri.
