Adopt-A-Drain

Help keep our natural waterways clean.

With its lakes, creeks, waterfalls and the Mississippi River, Minneapolis prides itself on natural water. A big part of protecting our waterways is right on our streets. Leaves, dirt, garbage and anything that gets left on the street can wash down storm drains and go untreated into our lakes and the river. 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.

How can you help?

Sign up for the Minneapolis Adopt a Drain program, and commit to clearing leaves and trash from it regularly. If you notice that the device beneath the grate has material in it, don't try to remove the grate - you can call 311 and a Minneapolis Sewer Maintenance crew will come out to clean it. Never put anything down a storm drain. It’s for rain and melting snow only. Be a champion and spread the word with your neighbors.
