City puts murals on storm drains to discourage dumping

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The city of Cedar Rapids unveiled seven new downtown murals today, all on storm drains.

The city says storm drains are hot spots for the dumping of grease, paint, and other trash. They say all of that makes its way to the Cedar River.

They hope the murals will make people think twice before dumping in them.

Iowa BIG, the Downtown District, Paint Iowa Beautiful, and Diamond Vogel helped make the mural installation possible.

A map of all of the mural locations can be found here.
