Storm Drain Art Project
In partnership with Spartanburg Soil and Water Conservation District, we are excited to have completed the first Storm Drain Art Project in Spartanburg County, along the Butterfly Creek on the Northside of Spartanburg.
Why Storm Drain Art?
Our goal is to educate the public about the water runoff that flows into storm drains going untreated into our larger waterways. Aside from a few private wells, most of Spartanburg County's drinking water is sourced from surface water. If the runoff is polluted, it will directly affect the quality of our drinking water.
Our hope is to generate greater awareness about protecting our water for healthier, more resilient communities in Spartanburg County. Being in the Upstate region, we are at the top of the watershed for the rest of the state, so good water quality starts here. If the water that flows out of our county is polluted, we aren't being good neighbors.
