Sewer Alert-ABC WEDNESDAY "S"

In an attempt to halt pollution, many sewers in our area carry this sign.  Often they are painted by students on school activities and community service assignments.  Good reminders.

  2. I think these reminders are important. The ones in my neighborhood are fading.

  3. Kate,

    As always, thank you for your comment on my site, which I answered there, explaining that Tamarindo is indeed a surfing town, and many of the people who come there for vacation do so specifically to take advantage of the surfing.

  8. We have some of those in our area too.
    It's really too easy to just let water go down the drain and not think about its destination.
    Great reminder and perfect post for the letter S.

  9. many of our sewers show a significant design - often from Victorian era. Built to last eh?

  11. People often think that stormwater drains like this carry water to some sort of treatment plant. Not so. And unfortunately the waters are often polluted with motor oils and runoff from garden pesticides and fertilizers.

    Kate, I emailed you my rice pudding recipe last night. Hope you got it!

  14. I've not seen these kinds of signs before, but, yes, many people don't think about where the water runoff actually goes.

  18. Kate, I think that this is a great reminder that our wastes and garbage wind up in rivers and streams... Creative, engaging reminder for those students and all of us.

  19. We have a "stream-of-dreams" program here. School children hand-paint wooden salmon and display them on chain-link fences. There are also yellow symbols on the sewers. Nice to see that this sort of awareness is happening in your part of the world too.

  20. I wonder -do you think those signs made a difference? I wonder how they would measure that. Statistics. That's the name of the game.
