If you live in any of these communities, have a storm drain near you and can spare at least 15 minutes a month consider Adopting a Storm Drain. It’s easy!
Dane County is partnering with the City of Fitchburg, City of Middleton, City of Sun Prairie, City of Stoughton, Village of DeForest, Village of McFarland, Village of Cross Plains, and Village of Cottage Grove on an Adopt-A-Storm Drain program. The goal of the program is to build a network of volunteers committed to cleaning the area on and around local storm drains and report 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.
All Adopt a Storm Drain volunteers will receive a cleaning kit that includes: a safety vest, storm drain decal to place on their adopted storm drain, dust pan and broom, collection bucket and an Adopt a Storm Drain sticker/window cling to proudly display. Volunteers will also be included on our Adopt a Storm Drain e-Newsletter, which comes out 3-4 times/year.
Thanks for helping to keep our communities and local waterways clean!
