The next time it rains, look down.

Rain-activated sidewalk art is all a part of Onondaga County’s Save The Rain “Connect the Drops” initiative. It’s meant to educate community members about the connection between littering, stormwater and the cleanliness of our lakes and water system.

“All too often, things that actually get into the street find their way to our water bodies, so what we’re really trying to do, we have this great campaign so every time it rains, you’ll see these images appear reminding the community to keep litter out of the forecast,” said Tom Rhoads, Commissioner of the Department of Water/Environment Protection.

Messages will be strategically located across the city all summer long.

If you find one, post a picture to social media using the hashtag “Connect The Drops.”
