his is a new program that the Frisco Water Division is taking on, and we need your help! Help reduce pollution (like chemicals, trash, fertilizers, yard waste) from entering storm drains and polluting our local water bodies by labeling storm drain inlets with a special educational tile.

You and/or your volunteer group will meet in a designated neighborhood with a City of Frisco employee who will demonstrate the procedure of placing tiles on storm drain inlets.
