The Adopt a Storm Drain program provides residents with the opportunity to give back to their community by taking care of storm drains in their neighbourhood to help protect properties from street flooding and protect the environment by keeping debris from flowing into Wascana Creek.
Storm drains can be adopted at anytime.
