** This event has been rescheduled from July 17**
Across our city, there are approximately 75,000 inlets collecting stormwater. As rainwater and melting snow washes over our gardens, sidewalks and streets, it picks up pollutants and trash that ends up in these drains. Many Philadelphians don’t realize that what goes down our storm drains eventually makes its way into our creeks before draining into the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers, the source of our drinking water!
Philadelphia Water is working hard to protect our waterways by preventing stormwater runoff, but we need your help. By marking storm drains, you’re playing an important role in protecting our waterways and letting your friends and neighbors know that only rain belongs down the drain!
Join South Kensington Community Partners (SKCP) and Philadelphia Water Department at Towey Playground to learn about PWD's programs and volunteer with your neighbors to mark stormwater drains and prevent pollution across South Kensington.
