It's not unusual in this country to see a drainage grate that says No Dumping - Drains to Stream/River/Lake/Ocean or what have you. This is a storm sewer cover in my neighborhood. I assume that storm sewer runoff has nothing like the treatment of sanitary sewers and that water that comes through here will find its way into the Mississippi. No one is going to pull this open to dump used crankcase oil but the authorities placed the cone just in case.

Different grates and manhole coverings here have different markings.
