New Murals in St. Cloud!

With the help of local artists, the Storm Drain Art Program integrates art into the environment. 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. 

New murals were painted throughout July 2023, with local artists contributing to the artwork in community-focused locations like parks and popular recreation areas. The first of these murals, by Jared Nelson, was completed at the Jaycees Dog Park. Another mural has been completed near the Lady Slipper Parking Lot in downtown St. Cloud recently! Keep an eye out for the four new murals by amazing local artists. 

St. Cloud Stormwater Program

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

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. You can adopt a drain near you (
