Take care of your neighborhood and the river at the same time!
Adopting a storm drain can be one of many ways of helping us keep the Huron River clean! It’s simple and can be done as a group or an individual project. This project has no strict timelines and can be done at your leisure, so you never have to force yourself to go out in bad weather. If you chose to adopt a storm drain within the Huron River Watershed you are helping restore the quality of our streams, small tributaries and over all the Huron River. This is all done by labeling our storm drains so others know that they go directly to our local water ways.
If you are interested in Adopting a Storm Drain you can find out the availability of storm drains around you by submitting a Storm drain Sign Up Form.
This program is limited to neighborhood streets with speed limits of 25mph.
Storm Drains need the most maintaining during spring and autumn but you can sign up anytime!
If this is your first time volunteering with HRWC, please fill out both the Basic Information Form and the Adopt-A-Stormdrain Sign Up Form. If you have previously volunteered for any HRWC programs, please fill out the Sign Up Form only.
