Kitsap County Green Stormwater Infrastructure Interpretive Signs
Kitsap County Public Works (http://www.kitsapgov.com/sswm)
Kitsap County, WA
New interpretive signage designed for Kitsap County Public Works enhances citizen awareness of County programs to improve stormwater facilities and educates viewers about green stormwater techniques they can use at home. The Watershed Company initially designed two interpretive signs highlighting stormwater ponds and bioretention swales at the Public Works offices.
Pleased with the first two signs, the County commissioned adaptations of the original signs as well as three additional green stormwater infrastructure signs to be installed at projects with permeable paving, bioretention cells and rain gardens, and green street infrastructure. The Watershed Company also provided updated layouts and graphics for five existing interpretive signs at the Haselwood YMCA. Topics included permeable paving, rain garden design, rain garden function, and water saving options for home gardens. All interpretive signs use custom illustrations and an eye-catching, contemporary look to attract readers.
