Fall has arrived and the rainy season is upon us … and Seattle Public Utilities (SPU).
SPU needs your help preventing flooding by keeping neighborhood storm drains clear of debris and the water flowing.
November is Fall Clean. Residents are invited to participate in the Adopt-A-Drain Program during Seattle’s peak leaf-falling season. During this time SPU provides residents and business owners with free cleanup supplies – rakes, bags, gloves, shovels, brooms and dustpans. Your help during fall is appreciated by Seattle Public Utilities crews who are responsible for nearly 80,000 storm drains.
Both the City and the individuals or groups adopting the drains make a commitment to each other to perform certain activities to keep neighborhood drains free from leaf matting, help prevent flooding and to improve water quality within our watersheds.
Supplies can be picked up at SPU’s warehouse at 3633 East Marginal Way South.
