Adopt A Drain Program

Adopt-a-Drain logo

Adopt a storm drain in your neighborhood before Labor Day and you’ll receive a free tote bag from Adopt-A-Drain.org

When you adopt a drain, you volunteer to keep it free of leaves, trash and other pollutants. Storm drains feed directly into Moore Lake, Rice Creek and the Mississippi River, so it’s important to keep them clear for cleaner and healthier waterways. When pollutants reach our water, they feed the algae that turn lakes and rivers green, often choking out the food and oxygen wildlife needs to survive. Not to mention algae is ugly, stinky and makes it difficult to enjoy our beloved water activities.

It’s FREE and so easy—it only takes a few minutes of your time each month. Do it at your convenience—whenever it works for you. So far, over 12,000 drains have been adopted in the Twin Cities Metro and over 200,000 pounds of debris has been kept out of our waterways by heroes who care about the environment like you. Sign up to adopt a storm drain before Labor Day and you’ll receive a tote bag* from Adopt-A-Drain.org, perfect for showing off your dedication to your local environment. Program participants that refer a friend will also get a tote bag*.

Learn more or sign up at adopt-a-drain.org.
