Help protect water, adopt a drain

Want to help preserve and protect Bloomington’s water? It’s easy with the adopt-a-storm-drain program. Make a commitment to clean out a storm drain at least once during the spring and fall or other times as needed, then sign up for the program online. 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. Last year, 275 Bloomington participants collected nearly 5,000 pounds of debris from their adopted storm drains. Adopting a storm drain is a fun, cost-free project the whole family can do.
