Partnerships for a Cleaner and Greener Saint Paul
The City of Saint Paul partners with several agencies and non-profit organizations to keep our stormwater clean to protect our rivers, lakes, streams, and environment.
- Friends of the Mississippi River offers a free Storm Drain Stenciling Education Program. Using paint and stencils, volunteers mark storm drains with the message, “Keep 'em Clean Drains to River” and distribute door hangers to neighborhood homes and businesses.
- Minnesota Water – Let’s Keep It Clean is a stormwater education collaboration of cities, counties, and water management organizations in the Twin Cities and St. Cloud metro areas.
- Adopt a Drain is a partnership with the Capitol Region Watershed District and Hamline University to help keep pollution from our streets out of our water. Residents adopt a storm drain in local neighborhoods and volunteer to keep the storm drains clear of debris (garbage, leaves, dirt) all year.
