Conservation Corridor Activities

Protect Local Waterways

What does it mean to "adopt" a drain? By adopting a drain you will be making a commitment to monitor and maintain a drain of your choice. Create a positive impact by preventing flooding in your neighborhood by keeping drains free of debris; preventing pollutants from entering our lakes, rivers, creeks, and Puget Sound, which impact the habitat for fish and other wildlife; and helping the city maintain our infrastructure, especially during fall months when rain increases and falling leaves block the drains.
