The Yellow Fish Road Program is designed to create awareness on storm drain pollution and shares the message that "Rainwater Only" should be entering our storm drains, which lead directly to the Oldman River, and are untreated by local treatment plants. The program involves painting yellow fish by storm drains and hanging door hangers for awareness.
