Volunteer fifteen minutes, twice a month, for cleaner waterways and healthier communities. Storm drains flow directly to local lakes, rivers, wetlands, springs and the Gulf of Mexico, acting as a conduit for trash and organic pollutants. Adopt-a-Drain asks residents to adopt a storm drain in their neighborhood and keep it clear of leaves, trash, and other debris to reduce water pollution.
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.
Rain washes anything that’s on streets and paved surfaces down storm drains and into lakes, rivers, wetlands, springs, and the Gulf of Mexico. Help keep our water clean!
Pollutants like fertilizers and pesticides can harm our lakes and rivers. Leaves, grass, and yard waste add to the problem.
Leaves, grass and dirt feed algae and turn lakes and rivers green. Keep them off streets and sidewalks.
Dog poop carries harmful bacteria. Pick it up, bag it, and put it in the garbage.
Oil, grease, and soap grime washes into storm drains which flow unfiltered to local waterways. Keep chemicals off streets and sidewalks.
Log in to estimate the amount of debris collected from your storm drain. Report after each cleaning, once a month, or once a year - whatever works for you.Track Impact
