The City of Sedalia has several ways that citizens can get involved to protect local streams and rivers through the stormwater management program.
Storm Drain Stenciling
Volunteers will be asked to paint inlets with a stenciling tool that reads “Dump No Waste Drains to Streams.” This is beneficial to stormwater quality by allowing people to realize where the water entering these inlets is designed to go.
Stormwater Outfall Cleaning
You or your group can help remove debris that contaminates the creeks and rivers around Sedalia. We have sixteen locations from which to choose. Some groups may want to maintain a particular location throughout the year.
Adopt a Storm Drain Inlet
This volunteer service consists of adopting a storm drain, whether it is in front of your house or somewhere else located in the City. You may adopt as many as you like. Adopting a storm drain means keeping it clean from debris and other materials by cleaning it regularly.
Civilian Watch Group
Just looking out your window or being observant in your neighborhood and reporting illegal dumping to the Stormwater Hotline can be of great value in protecting our local bodies of water. Callers can remain anonymous.
This volunteer service consists of cleaning drainage basins and ditches.
