Volunteer fifteen minutes, twice a month, for cleaner waterways and healthier communities. Storm drains flow directly to rivers, lakes, creeks, and the Puget Sound, 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 and help prevent localized flooding.
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.
Post a sign in your yard to inspire neighbors to join you in preventing water pollution.
Rain washes anything that’s on streets and paved surfaces down storm drains and into rivers, lakes, creeks, and the Puget Sound. Help keep our water clean!
Trash clogs drains and pipes causing flooding. Trash that enters storm drains flows to local waterways. Scoop it up and put it in the garbage
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.
Pollutants like fertilizers and pesticides can harm our lakes and rivers. Leaves, grass, and yard waste add to the problem.
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
