Thanks for your interest in keeping our waters clean in Maine.

Stormwater carries pollutants such as oil, dirt, chemicals and lawn fertilizers directly into streams and rivers, where they harm organisms, fish and plant life.  Everyone has a part to play in keeping pollutants off of paved surfaces.

Many Towns in southern Maine stencil their storm drains to remind residents and visitors that the drains discharge directly out into the natural waters of our state.
