Adopt a storm drain

Are you looking for an easy way to protect your neighborhood’s natural water? The City is partnering with the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District and the Center for Global and Environmental Education at Hamline University to launch a new adopt-a-storm drain program in Bloomington. Residents who adopt a storm drain will be asked to report debris removal once in the fall and spring online or by returning a postcard. As a thank you, those who sign up will receive a yard sign to show they are protecting our waters. Visit to sign up or for more information. Did you know? The water and debris that go through storm drains do not go to the waste water treatment plant but  directly to local watersheds. Anything other than rainwater going through storm drains has the potential to degrade Bloomington waterbodies.
