Fort Wayne, like many communities around the country, wants to call attention to the storm drains in our community and remind people that they should never dump anything down a storm drain.  Most stormwater runoff that goes into a storm drain does not receive any kind of water quality treatment before it goes into a pond, stream or one of the City's rivers.  That means that anything that enters a storm drain also goes directly to a water body.
 
Marking storm drains in your neighbohrood is easy to do.
