Rain Coming: Adopt-a-Drain reminder

From SFPUC: 

Adopt a Drain SF

Help Us Keep San Francisco’s 25,000 Storm Drains Clear
Adopt A Drain SF

Launched in October 2016, the Adopt a Drain Program enables San Francisco residents to “adopt” one of the City’s 25,000 storm drains, keeping it free of debris. While helping to reduce localized flooding, the program also fosters community engagement by encouraging San Franciscans to take an active role in improving their neighborhood. To sign up and adopt a drain, go to adoptadrain.sfwater.org!

How to Care for Your Adopted Drain

  • If possible, clear the drain before it starts raining.
  • Put leaves and other natural material in the green compost bin. Put trash in the black garbage bin.
  • Clear about 10 feet on both sides of the drain.
  • Medical waste or needles? Construction debris? Toxic materials? Report it to the City’s Customer Service Center, SF311.org on the web (or dial 3-1-1).
