The City of Goshen Stormwater Management Department decided to combine Goshen's love for art with stormwater and is happy to announce the 2016 Storm Drain Art Walk. A 1.2 mile long route from the Goshen Public Library to the Goshen Farmers Market on Washington Street featuring eight murals created by 10 artists. For a map of the route click here.
More information on each artist, their painting, and where it is located can be found below by clicking on the artist(s) name(s).
These students from Chandler Elementary School spent the afternoon learning about stormwater, storm drains, and the beautiful storm drain art along 5th Street.
Storm drains play an important role in our City. They keep our roads safe by draining rain water and snow melt and preventing flooding.
Many people do not know that most of our storm drains are connected directly to a local waterway (e.g. Rock Run Creek or the Elkhart River). This means everything dropped on the road can pollute our streams and river.
Potential pollutants like soil, trash, oil, grass clippings,and poop all impair the water and make it tough for fish and other wildlife to live. Some pollutants, like poop and oil, can become health hazards for people as well.
