This program is open to residents and groups who live in the City of Fitchburg, City of Middleton, City of Stoughton, City of Sun Prairie, Village of Cross Plains, Village of DeForest, Village of McFarland and Village of Cottage Grove.
Dane County is partnering with the communities listed above to build a network of volunteers committed to cleaning the area on and around local storm drains and reporting back results. Keeping storm drains clean and clear can prevent localized flooding, keep our communities clean and protect our waters. Municipalities are working hard to clean and maintain these storm drains, but they can’t do it alone. If you live in any of the participating communities, have a storm drain near you and can spare at least 15 minutes a month consider Adopting a Storm Drain. It’s easy!
Adopted storm drains should be cleaned regularly, especially before heavy rainfalls. As part of this program, you are committing to cleaning your storm drain at least once a month. Remember, your drain leads to a local waterbody, so removing even small items like plastic wrappers can help!
Thanks for helping to keep our communities and local waterways clean!
