Recently, Metro Water Services partnered with Metro General Services to place these “Drains to River” signs on storm drains throughout Metro’s Fulton Campus. Similar signs can be found on storm drains across Nashville to remind us that anything thrown on the ground – from trash to cigarette butts – can make its way into storm drains and then into the Cumberland, our source for drinking water.

Signs were also installed to designate Fulton Campus bioretention areas, which capture and purify rainwater, resulting in less polluted runoff during a major rainfall event.
