Storm Drain Awareness Murals

The City of Beaverton owns and manages 9,194 storm drain catch basins. The storm water that enters those catch basins from roads, driveways, rooftops, and other impervious surfaces flows largely untreated to local streams, lakes and other waterbodies. Protecting water resources is critical for not only our city, but communities downstream as well. The connection between storm drains and our local waterways can often be overlooked and the impacts are not understood. 

The goal of this project is to use local artists to create awareness around storm drains as a direct connection to our local waterways. The City of Beaverton invites artists to submit designs for the 2018 Storm Drain Murals project. The selected artwork will enhance Beaverton’s existing infrastructure by transforming storm drains into artistic features surrounding Progress Lake.
