Adopting a drain makes a big difference!
“Natural” debris— grass clippings, leaves, and pet waste—become pollution when they hit our water. They feed algae, causing water to become green and soupy. This harms water quality, harms beneficial vegetation and wildlife, and harms recreation opportunities.
Storm drains flow directly to local lakes, rivers, and wetlands, 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.
