Storm Drain Mural Project at Trailblazer Park

Posted on

Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District worked with artists to transform six storm drains into public works of art. In addition to their artistic value, painted storm drains serve as important educational tools to address stormwater pollution and the common misconception that our storm drains lead to sewer treatment facilities. In reality, anything that enters a storm drain goes directly into the nearest river, lake, or stream without being treated. Five artists were selected to paint six murals in Berea, Greenville, Travelers Rest, Simpsonville, and Fountain Inn. Pictured below is the storm drain art, painted by local artists Elizabeth Kinney. The storm drain is located in Trailblazer Park.  Learn more about the project here:
