Colorado Springs Clean Water
Get your mind into the gutter…
We Challenge You
GE Johnson, WSP USA, Terra Verde Boutique, Rotary Club of Colorado Springs and the city of Colorado Springs, together with Frog Creek Partners, issues a challenge to the Colorado Springs community to protect Fountain Creek by sponsoring Gutter Bins
What Are We Doing?
We’re installing the Gutter Bin® stormwater filtration system around the community. The Gutter Bin operates like a coffee filter for storm drains – trapping pollution before it has a chance to flow into the closest stream, river, lake or ocean. Periodically, Gutter Bins are cleaned – diverting pollution to the landfill, not the environment. On average, each Gutter Bin will capture about 300 pounds of pollution each year based on results from the city of Colorado Springs.
Why Are We Doing It?
Stormwater pollution is the single greatest source of water pollution today. Every time it rains, stormwater washes the filth on our streets directly to local waterways. The vast majority of stormwater isn’t treated or filtered. It simply drains to the closest body of water along with all of the trash, sediment, heavy metals and oils and greases it picks up along the way. Gutter Bins stops that from happening.

Call or email us today to purchase and donate your own Gutter Bins to your town. Frog Creek Partners makes it easy for community leaders, businesses and organizations to take part in keeping our water clean. Do you know of a polluted storm drain in our area? Contact us and we’ll take it from there.
