Adopt a drain and protect water

You can help preserve and protect Bloomington’s water by adopting a storm drain. The Adopt-a-Storm Drain Program is an easy and cost-free way to make a difference. 

To get started, sign up for the program. Next, plan to clean out your storm drain at least once in the fall and once in the spring. (Some storm drain adopters clean more often depending on needs.) Twice a year, report your debris removal online or by returning a postcard. Program participants receive a yard sign to show they are protecting our waters.
