Catch Basin Murals for Earth Day

Perth Amboy Catch Basin Murals

Perth Amboy Artworks presents 5 catch basin murals in celebration of Earth Day.  Artists have been busy painting catch basin murals to raise awareness about our stormwater infrastructure. Keeping these street drains clean is important for protecting our water and preventing flooding. The Perth Amboy Youth Alliance and local residents have adopted these catch basin murals and are volunteering to keep them clean from litter and debris.
