Adopt Your Drain and Prevent Local Flooding

Fall DrainDon’t let fall rainstorms flood your street. Help clear your local storm drain of leaves and other debris by adopting your local storm drain. 

Every autumn Seattle Public Utilities faces a big job keeping storm drains clear – there are over 70,000 of them around the city!

Remember to clear your drain only if it is safe. Stay out of the street and work from a sidewalk if possible. Put all leaves and compostable debris in your yard waste cart. If the drain is still clogged, call our drainage problem hotline at 206-386-1800.
