A Growing Network of Educational Signs

Our local signage network highlights landscapes that soak up runoff to protect local waterways. It’s here to help us all see runoff, understand its negative impacts, visualize solutions, and get inspired to take on a water-friendly project at work, at home, or with an organization.

Our network now includes 22 signs in 10 different locations. Signs are added each year to identify Soak It Up! Award winning properties, and to bring educational value to existing runoff reduction projects in our community.

If your property is landscaped for runoff reduction, or if you are planning a project to reduce runoff, contact us to add an educational sign to your property and this network. We can assist you with content and a design that fits the style of this region-wide signage system, and we’ll connect you with a manufacturer that produces a long-lasting, well-produced sign.

We can’t reshape our urban landscape overnight. But the more we all know about stormwater runoff and how to reduce it, the sooner we can eliminate the biggest source of water pollution in our area. Together, we can make a difference.
