Stormdrains flow directly to local lakes, rivers, and wetlands, acting as a conduit for trash and organic pollutants. The Adopt-a-Drain program asks residents to adopt a stormdrain in their neighborhood and keep it clear of leaves, trash, and other debris to reduce water pollution. Volunteer fifteen minutes, twice a month, for cleaner waterways and healthier communities.
How It Works
- Sign up online to Adopt a Drain in your neighborhood.
- Sweep leaves, trash and other debris off the drain surface year round.
- Keep an estimated total of the debris you collect and enter it into your online account so we can gauge the cumulative results of our work.
- Let friends and neighbors know about your commitment and, if they ask, tell them about small things they can do at home to prevent water pollution.
