Adopt a Storm Drain
This month you can protect our waterways by adopting a storm drain.
Older cities typically use combined sewer overflow systems which connect storm drains and the sanitary sewer system to the wastewater treatment facility. In most cases, stormwater drains flow directly into our waterways without treatment (Clear Choices Clean Water). Both systems have negatives such as downstream flooding and water pollution. Help protect our water by adopting a storm drain and clearing it of leaves and debris.
