Benefits of Adopting a Storm Drain
- Help Reduce or Prevent Flooding
Clogged storm drain inlets can cause or worsen flooding. Keeping drains free of debris will help water drain properly.
- Help Protect Our Waterways from Pollution
Stormwater flows to waterways untreated and is the #1 contributor of pollution to our waters. By keeping litter and pollutants out of storm drains you are helping protect the area’s water bodies.
- Help Keep Your Neighborhood Clean and Free of Litter
Set a positive example by being an active steward of your neighborhood.
All illegal discharge (dumping of debris, trash, or wastewater) into the stormwater system should be reported to the Citizens Services Center.
