Resources and Community Volunteer Opportunities
ADOPT A STORM DRAIN
Storm drains collect stormwater from streets and transport it to local underground waterways. Runoff can carry litter, debris and other pollutants to the drains, the stormwater sewer system and eventually into our waterways. Litter and debris can also clog drains, flooding local streets.
For this project, residents adopt one or more storm drains in their neighborhood and periodically check, and if needed remove, litter from the top of the drain. Learn more and sign-up here. For current volunteers please fill out new form to confirm your participation.
