12. Why are stormwater inlets being painted?

City staff are marking stormwater inlets with spray paint as part of an ongoing project under the City's Stormwater Management Plan. Inlets are being stenciled with, "No Dumping - Drains to Stream." This effort is being taken to discourage illegal dumping into the storm sewer and will be occurring all over town.
