Adopt A Catch Basin Program

What is a catch basin?

A catch basin is a drain that collects stormwater from streets and transports it down into the ground or to local waterways via underground infrastructure.

Why Should I adopt a catch basin?

Catch basins exist to prevent flooding. Unfortunately, over time they can become clogged with debris, trash, or leaf litter.  Keeping them clean helps prevent flooding and surface water pollution.

How can I adopt a catch basin?

  1. Select a catch basin or stormdrain near your residence.  Please do not select a drain in a roadway or other hazardous area.
  2. Complete the Adopt A Catch Basin application by clicking on the photo of the catch basin below, or clicking here to open the application.
