Love murals? Want to protect our local streams and Puget Sound? Kitsap County Public Works Stormwater Division seeks your input on designs that will transform storm drains into public works of art.
These public art and stormwater education installations help connect the community to our local water resources. The top designs will illustrate themes like these:
Stormwater Pollution: Puget Sound Starts Here…at our storm drains
Environmental Protection: Our Kitsap County waterways are resources worth protecting
Local ecosystems: Preventing stormwater pollution protects orcas, salmon and human health
In 2019, artists installed five designs in Keyport. Due to continued health concerns with the coronavirus, we are modifying the 2020 program to meet health and safety guidelines. In July, the public will be invited on social media and online to vote for their favorite designs. The top three designs will be installed in Manchester in late summer 2020. Follow Kitsap County on Facebook or Instagram so you can stay involved this year!
