Storm drains help transport runoff from roofs, driveways, streets and other hard surfaces to underground pipes or storm sewers that eventually make their way to our lakes, rivers, and streams. Unfortunately, that runoff also carries pollutants to our waters. Clearing leaves, grass, trash, and other debris from storm drains can help reduce pollutants while also helping to prevent localized flooding. Keeping storm drains clean can help protect our waters!
