Local Artists Transform Storm Drains into Inspiring Artworks for Clean Waterways

June 12, 2024

In an innovative effort to beautify the community and promote environmental stewardship, local artists are turning storm drains into vibrant artworks. This unique project aims to educate the public about the importance of keeping trash out of storm drains to protect our rivers and streams.

Each piece of art, meticulously painted around storm drains, conveys a powerful message about the impact of pollution on our waterways. These artworks serve as visual reminders to community members to dispose of waste properly, ensuring that our storm drains remain free from debris and our local water systems stay clean.

The project, a collaboration between several local organizations and community members, highlights the importance of collective action in preserving the environment. Partners include PalmettoPride, the Laurens County Water & Sewer Commission (LCWSC), the City of Laurens, the City of Clinton, Blank Canvas Mural Company, and the Clinton High School Art Class. Their combined efforts have brought this initiative to life, transforming ordinary storm drains into extraordinary works of art.
