New Storm Drain Mural – We’re on the map!
Do you know where the water that washes down your storm drain goes? A new Storm Drain Mural Program led by the Madison Area Stormwater Partnership, Dane County Land and Water Resources Dept. and Dane Arts Mural Arts (DAMA) is using art as a vessel to help teach students and communities across Dane County about stormwater. Once completed their map will highlight 20 storm drain murals across Dane County. Check them out at www.ripple_effects.com, and click on Cross Plains! Along with the DAMA team and high school student volunteers, we had three Cross Plains students helping: Zoe Hyland, Julia Burkholder, and Megan Peters.
