Protecting streams & fish with storm drain marking

On Wednesday, June 20  students and teachers from Palsson Elementary School took to the streets to paint yellow fish around town to remind us that storm drains on our roadways empty directly into nearby streams — fish and wildlife habitat. Ms. Monti and Mr. Kleike took Ms. Bhandari’s mixed Grade 2 through 5 class along Neva Road area and painted yellow fish beside the storm drains.

The Storm Drain Marking Program is developed and sponsored by Department of Fisheries and Oceans through its Community Advisors and administered here in Lake Cowichan by the Cowichan Lake Salmonid Enhancement Society.
