    Parents, do you need help finding new activities to do with your children at home? Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is happy to announce that we are continuing to offer storm drain stencil kits as a fun and safe activity for you and your immediate family/household! This is a chance to get outside, give back to your local community, and learn the importance of pollution prevention in our local waterways – while also upholding COVID safety guidelines. Your safety is our priority, and we will be in the Orca K-8 parking lot every other Wednesday until the end of November (9/23 TBD, 10/7, 10/21, 11/4, 11/18) providing a ZERO CONTACT KIT PICK-UP/DROP-OFF. Kits include: instructions, stencils, water-based spray paint, garbage bags, safety vests, and a Volunteer Safety Requirements & Activity sheet. Please email Kelsey Bailey at to reserve a sanitized storm drain stencil kit and pick it up at one of the above dates. If you do not reserve a kit, a very limited amount of extra kits will be available on a first-come, first served basis. We ask that you please return the kit in 2 weeks at the following zero contact date, unless specific arrangements are made. Thank you for helping us make a difference in protecting our local waters and Puget Sound! *Masks are required.
