Adopt-A-Storm Drain

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

Why adopt a storm drain?

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

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!
