Keep an eye out for the blue fish logo and remember, the drain is just for rain.

About the Blue Fish Campaign

The Blue Fish Campaign raises awareness of potentially polluting substances and their impact on our Island's water environment.

Blue fish logo

Surface water road drains are designed to remove rain water from roofs, footpaths and roads. They must not be used to dispose of litter or waste chemicals like paints, detergents or oils. We identify these drains by putting a blue fish icon next to them.

Fish stencils are available free from the Department of the Environment.
