Last Sunday, Birdman of Portland City Photos posted a similar drain sign, leading to the Bay in his city. The one above is one of the most recent curbside signs in my neighborhood. This reminded me of a community service activity that students did in the school in which I used to teach. One day in 2012 by happenstance in front of my house, I saw a former colleague shepherding her small group of advisees to paint the warning signs on the the drain areas on our block. Perhaps the discarded "stuff" is diverted some way to a central location, but it appears that the rainwater and debris along the curbs drain directly to the river. Who knew!?
