Help clear your local storm drain

There are more than 7,000 storm drains in Shoreline. City crews work to keep storm drains clear, but when the Northwest rain starts coming down, it takes everyone's help to keep the water going in the right direction!

During the storm season, October through March, residents can volunteer to “adopt” a storm drain, and remove leaves and other debris that accumulate on top of drains after storm events.

By joining the Adopt-A-Drain Program you help:
  • Prevent localized flooding in your neighborhood by keeping drains free of debris.
  • Protect fish and other wildlife by keeping pollutants from entering streams, lakes and Puget Sound. 

To learn more about the program, or to sign-up, visit the project page or call Surface Water and Environmental Services at 206-801-2450.
