Public education and outreach is part of the NPDES requirement. Storm drain marking is an established method of involving the public and increasing community awareness about non-point source pollution.
Unfortunately storm drain marking using spray painted stencils is messy, time consuming, and contradictory to the environmental message being presented (it eventually washes down the "protected" drain). It's also ultimately quite expensive as it must be re-done every couple of years.
Our storm drain marker is the only performance proven alternative available.
The 4" Duracast Storm Drain Marker is easy to install and difficult to remove. It is made from a .030 proprietary white plastic with UV inhibitors and a layering of materials for flexibility and impact resistance. The printing is on the face of the material which is then covered with a layer of UV clearcoating for UV and abrasion resistance. Finally a polyurethane "dome" is applied to the face of the marker. This optically clear, self-healing, non-yellowing Duracast surface protects against mechanical and chemical abrasion. The Duracast surface effectively doubles U.V. resistance as well.
