Take care of your neighborhood and the river at the same time
Adopting a stormdrain is one of many ways you can help keep the Huron River clean and prevent flooding in your neighborhood streets! It’s simple and can be done as a group or as an individual. There are no strict timelines so you can volunteer whenever it is convenient for you.
|Anyone or any group can adopt a stormdrain!|
|Homeowners and renters||Businesses||Schools||Conservation organizations|
|Churches||Scouting programs||College students||Neighborhood groups|
When you adopt a stormdrain you will
- Label it with a stormdrain marker, alerting others that it sends runoff directly to our local waterways–no filters, no treatment.
- Then simply do your best to clean debris like leaves and litter from its grate on an ongoing basis. (details below)
We care about your safety so this program is limited to neighborhood streets with speed limits of 25mph.
Stormdrains need the most maintaining during spring and autumn but you can sign up anytime!
