Storm Drain Art Program

The Storm Drain Art Program integrates art and the environment with the help of local students and artists. The program works with the community to create unique designs to showcase the personality of each neighborhood and incorporate important messages about stormwater pollution prevention awareness. 

St. Cloud has over 8,000 storm drains, and has partnered with local artists, the Sauk River Watershed District (SRWD), a MN Department of Health Source Water Protection Grant and the community to generate awareness about protecting our waterways, create a healthier community and craft a connection between our storm drains to our drinking water source – the Mississippi River. 

The Storm Drain Art Program goes hand-in-hand with the City’s Adopt-a-Drain program, where residents can adopt storm drains and keep them clear of sediment, trash, yard waste and debris to reduce water pollution.
