In partnership with the Municipality of Wawa and The Ontario Trillium Foundation, Economic Development Wawa is launching a Yellow Fish Road™ program, to raise local awareness around this issue.
Youth volunteers will paint “yellow fish” symbols with the words “Rainwater Only‟ beside storm drains and distribute fish-shaped brochures to nearby households. This is to remind people to properly use and safely dispose of hazardous household chemicals, cigarette butts and other garbage rather than allowing these to enter storm drains and Wawa Lake.
All Wawa Youth are invited to help paint storm drains around Wawa Lake with yellow fish and the words “RAINWATER ONLY!” To help Wawa celebrate Earth Day, two paint dates are being planned on Friday, April 21nd and Friday, April 28th followed by a pizza party.
Please contact the Wawa EDC for more information.
