Minneapolis Adopt-A-Drain Program

When it rains, stormwater carries grass clippings, leaves, cigarette butts, pesticides, fertilizers, antifreeze, paint, gasoline, motor oil, and animal waste directly into Minneapolis lakes, creeks, and the Mississippi River. Minneapolis residents and businesses can help keep our waterbodies clean by adopting storm drains in their neighborhood and committing to cleaning them regularly. 

Welcome to the Adopt-A-Drain program! 

The adoption process is easy and quick, and you will be able to adopt or un-adopt storm drains instantly.

Getting started

Visit the website to create a user profile and password:

https://Adopt-A-Drain.org/

Start by clicking on Dashboard, then Edit Profile, and fill out your contact information. Your Public Name is what other adopters will see. You can add a profile picture and choose whether you want to be contacted by the City of Minneapolis, as well as your local watershed organization.

You can also report how much material you collected and find tips on keeping your storm drains clean while staying safe at the same time. Once set up, take a moment to check out everything that the site has to offer.

 What should I do with the material I collect?

Need more information?

If you have any questions, email [email protected] or call the Minneapolis Adopt-A-Drain Hotline at 612-673-5522. If you want to help even more, consider adopting your street or block too. Visit Clean City Minneapolis for more information.

Thank you for keeping the storm drains clean and working to improve the waters of Minneapolis!
