The Yellow Fish Project is a way to let people know that the drains on the side of the road is for rain water only! No other chemicals or other stuff is allowed. As the water here drains directly into the river with no treatment in between. That mean fish in the river will be effected by what ever come in from these drains. Many towns and cities further down the river are also effected as they too get their drinking water from this river. We should all take care to keep our rivers clean.
They have a website you should visit: The City of Calgary Yellow Fish Road Program
I did this because it sounded neat and I needed to do it for my World Conservation badge.
To set this up I phoned the City of Calgary people and told them a day. I then went and got the stuff and brought it back for our group to use.
