Public Works - Storm Drain Marking Print

Storm Drain Marking

stormdrain
The City's Public Works Department recently engaged in a Storm Drain Marking Campaign. The City has put forth an effort to educate people regarding the hazards associated with pollutants such as oil, dirt, chemicals and lawn fertilizers that may flow directly into our storm drains, and ultimately, our drinking water via Peck Sink.

stormDrain1Peck Sink Preserve comprises 112 acres located on the north side of Wiscon Road west of Mobley Road. Stormwater drains into The Peck Sink Basin, an area of approximately 17 sq. miles. Peck Sink is a composite of at least five separate sinkholes, two of which form vertical shafts directly connected to the upper Floridan Aquifer, the main source of our drinking water. So the importance of conserving and protecting this natural resource from mismanagement and pollution is obvious.

In a coordinated effort with the Florida Department of Transportation, City staff marked seven key storm drains at the busy intersection of South Broad Street and Cortez Boulevard. On the face of the storm drain inlets is written, NO DUMPING – DRAINS TO PECK SINK, and on top of each drain is adhered a medallion indicating a similar slogan.
StormdrainmapCity Public Works plans to continue this Storm Drain Marking Campaign at other areas within the City, in compliance with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit requirements as directed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.


Every one of us has a moral obligation to help conserve, and improve the quality of water that enters the stormwater drainage systems and promote a healthy environment in our community. City staff and the Department of Public Works is proud to do its part in protecting, conserving, and minimizing the entry of pollutants into its precious water resources.
