Adopt A Storm Drain


Adopt a storm drain in your neighbourhood and keep our Oldman River and neighbourhoods free of debris, healthy and clean.

Adopting a storm drain in your neighbourhood or near your school will help keep debris out of our storm drains and prevent pollution from entering our Storm Ponds and the Oldman River. Adopting a storm drain is easy and a great opportunity to become environmental stewards. Keeping storm drains free of debris will help prevent ponding of water.
