Volunteers Needed: Winnetka Heights Stormwater Drain Inlet Marking

Saturday, May 10 starting at 9 a.m.
Meet at 121 South Clinton Avenue
Coffee and donuts will be provided

If you‘re concerned with the quality of your drinking water and the health of the Trinity River, do your part by volunteering for a few hours this Saturday!

We’re looking for volunteers to mark 156 stormwater inlets within Winnetka Heights. To support the event, the City of Dallas Stormwater department will supply English/Spanish inlet labels, glue, and an inlet location map broken into 8.5 x11 inch block-level maps with street names and an aerial photo background.

Trinity River water quality and the quality of our drinking water are tied together. Everything dumped into our stormwater inlets including grass clippings, leaves and trash end up as floating debris islands in the Trinity River. Rainwater is the only item that’s legally allowed to go into our storm drains, everything else is illegal – with a hefty fine if caught.

Meet at 9 a.m. this Saturday, May 10 at 121 S. Clinton Ave, where block assignment and supplies will be given. We’ll be finished before noon.
