Storm Drain Marking:

The City of Temple’s Storm Water Program hosts an annual Storm Drain Marking Event as part of our Public Education and Involvement program. This event consists of volunteers affixing steel buttons with a “Drains to Creek” message to the storm drain inlets and Storm Water Stenciling with the message "Don’t Dump Drains to Waterway". Anything that enters a storm drain inlet is discharged untreated into our waterways such as creeks, streams, rivers and lakes. Storm water affects both aquatic life and human life.
