Storm Drains

Storm drains direct untreated liquids and solids into the breeding corridors of most bay life.

Storm drains direct untreated liquids and solids into the breeding corridors of most bay life.

On Long Island, the rain water is transported into the bays without any filtration or treatment. Often, this carries with it the following:

  • Paint
  • Solvents
  • Cleaning Agents
  • Grass clippings
  • Leaves
  • Soil
  • Litter
  • Pool Chemicals
  • De-icing salts

Operation SPLASH provides citizen education to groups, schools and individual homeowners about best practices in  minimizing storm drain run-off pollution.

In addition, SPLASH has lobbied for the successful installation over  4,500 storm drain water filtration devices and over 5,000 decals and storm drain stencils in varied south shore towns. These stencils and decals notifying citizens to stop street trash before it gets to the bays!
