Help prevent flooding and protect Shoreline water quality - Adopt-A-Drain Program

Leaves, pine needles, trash, and snow accumulate on top of storm drains, blocking rain water from entering, and sometimes causing large puddles to form in our neighborhoods.

City crews sweep streets to keep drains clear, but the City could use your help!

During the months of October through March, residents can volunteer to “adopt” a storm drain or multiple drains, and remove leaves and other debris after storm events. It’s also a great way for students to fulfill volunteer requirements.

By joining the Adopt-A-Drain Program you help:
  • Prevent localized flooding in your neighborhood.
  • Improve traffic flow and maintain pedestrian access, especially for children and the elderly.
  • Protect fish and other wildlife by keeping pollutants from entering streams, lakes, and Puget Sound.

New participants that do not have their drains already marked will have medallions installed in spring / summer.
