The 10th Stittsville Brownies were painting yellow fish in Fairwinds on Thursday night. They’re as a reminderthat what you put down the drain eventually makes its way into rivers, lakes and streams, impacting the health of animals and people.

They painted yellow fish stencils next to storm drains on Riverfront, Tempest and Showandasee. The words “RAINWATER ONLY” are meant to remind people of the impact we have on nature and the environment.

The program is sponsored by the Ottawa Riverkeeper and Trout Unlimited Canada. Photos via Kerry Reimer.
