Adopt-a-Drain Program (Naperville)

The Naperville Public Works Department wants you to adopt a drain. They’ve started a volunteer program throughout town inviting residents and businesses to commit to taking on the task of keeping nearby drains free of debris. Clogged storm drains are one of the major causes of roadway flooding in Naperville, and the city spends over a million dollars each year on maintenance, inspections and repairs of the nearly 56,000 drains around town. If you’d like to sign up for the Adopt-A-Drain program, just head to the city’s website where you can choose a drain from the interactive map.  (For the team name, you can use your unit name such as Troop 101 or Pack 887.   Also, you can name your drain and choose your unit name so others can see that too.)
