Storm Water Model

The stormwater model is a fun, interactive tool to illustrate, with real water, how pollutants get into our waterways from houses, roads, farmland, and industry. Better yet, it shows the steps we can take to prevent water pollution.


Those wishing to borrow the water model, including a demonstration to your group or classroom, can contact
Susan Bryant at 519 669-5321 or shbryant@uwaterloo.ca

Yellow Fish Road Program

The Yellow Fish Road program educates the public about the impacts of pollution entering urban storm drains. In most communities, water entering storm drains goes directly into local rivers, streams and lakes untreated. Stormwater pollution can harm fish and wildlife, as well as reduce water quality for human use. Yellow Fish Road kits are available for volunteers to paint “yellow fish” symbols and the words “Rainwater Only” beside storm drains and distribute fish shaped brochures to nearby households. These activities remind people to properly use and dispose of hazardous household chemicals, rather than allowing these to enter curbside storm drains.

Those wishing to borrow Yellow Fish Road kits can contact
Ann Roberts at 519 669-1647 x 7027 or aroberts@woolwich.ca


More info about the Yellow Fish Road program is available at www.yellowfishroad.org
