Signs, Signs - Protect The Water

Andy | Wednesday, December 12, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

These mini signs are usually installed as a community project. They remind people that water and toxic waste is is a deadly mix ☠.

***********************************************


A volunteer group such as the Boy Scouts Of Canada install them on the curb beside the drains.
I'm linking to Lesley's Signs, Signs.

    1. Just five kilometres from my home is one of the most productive rivers for trout and salmon in Southern Ontario. Die hard fishermen will fish there all year... even in the freezing cold of winter.

  2. It's very scary to think about what's in the water we drink. I approve of these signs. ;))

  3. One might hope that people would know not to mix crap with fresh water...but nooooo. Thus, I'm glad for the signs.

  4. I like these reminders. I think people are generally not very aware that storm drain water does not get treated before it goes back into the system. Great find, Andy!

  10. Just think where your wastes goes in Apt buildings. Flush, flush as well.

    I hear lake ontario.

    Kind of makes you want to say. I will pass on the drinking water.

    Everything is recycled back into drinking water.I mean these water containers one sees in ones hands. Burp.

    Oh, I may be ill. Just thinking of those signs beware..

  12. It's called "non-point source pollution," aimed at all the things people put down storm drains, from motor oil to fertilizer and herbicide runoff from lawns and gardens. Some people think storm drain water is treated "somewhere." Others just don't think.

    I do like Hamilton's "motto."

  13. Wonder what the "Yellow Fish Road Community" is like? Is it wet year around? Do they get along with white fish? Fine sign to spot, Andy.

  16. I haven't seen any of these signs, but they are definitely needed as a reminder.
    Reading the comments you got for this post was most entertaining, too :)
