Storm Drain Markers

In order to increase public awareness about storm drain runoff, the City of Lynnwood is instituting a new program to label storm drains with metal storm drain markers.

StormDrain Marker

The intent of these markers is to eliminate confusion as to the destination of stormwater runoff from streets and sidewalks in urban areas. Many people believe that stormwater runoff is treated at the local sewer treatment plant, when in reality the storm drain flows directly into local waterways. This direct flow of untreated water is the leading cause of water pollution for the Puget Sound area.

If you would like to request a storm drain marker for your neighborhood storm drain, please contact Jared Bond at or (425) 670-5207.
