Adopting a stormdrain is a simple way that you can help keep the Huron River clean and take care of your neighborhood at the same time! It’s simple, and there are no strict timelines so you can volunteer whenever it is convenient for you.
Any individual or group can adopt a stormdrain!
- Homeowners or renters
- Conservation organizations
- Religious groups
- Scouting programs
- Neighborhood groups
* We care about your safety – this program is limited to neighborhood streets with speed limits of 25mph
When you adopt a stormdrain, you will:
- Label it with a stormdrain marker, alerting others that it sends runoff directly to our local waterways without filtration or treatment.
- Do your best to clean debris from your drain’s grate on a regular basis, such as leaves and litter (details below).
