All storm drainage systems nationwide are for the collection of rainwater off of private parking lots, and public roadways.  Whatever washes off of private property into the streets, ends up in the nearest stream, lake or river untreated. The City of Ellensburg sweeps the streets, cleans out the catch basins and pipes to try and keep the system clean.  We need your help educating the public about this matter.  Marking the drains so the public knows not to put pollutants into the system is important.   Overall, you are doing your part to help keep the Yakima River and its tributaries cleaner. T-shirt registration deadline March 29
