Special Programs
The Environmental Affairs Department is willing to partner with you on special programs geared toward improving water quality and enhancing stormwater management.
Storm Drain Stenciling Program

By-You Drainscapes Program

SWBNO, The City of New Orleans, and the Arts Council of New Orleans are partnering with the Port of New Orleans on the By-You Drainscapes Program

The program will employ artists from the Greater New Orleans region to paint storm drains in an effort to:

  • Educate the public by creating eye-catching murals people will discover and visit, building interest in stormwater infrastructure and pollution prevention
  • Promote ownership, community stewardship, awareness and responsibility for impacts to water quality and infrastructure in the Greater New Orleans Region
  • Provide a new layer of tourism that emphasizes direct connections of storm drains to water quality and the environment
  • Educate students by connecting curriculum and involving schools in the art installation process on their properties
  • Develop awareness campaigns centered around murals to continue to build public awareness and educational opportunities beyond art on the ground
