Introduction to Adopt-A-Catch Basin

Adopt-A-Catch Basin can be used to operate catch basin adoption programs that allow volunteers to adopt storm drains and clean them for the community.

Many communities have implemented catch basin adoption programs to enhance their stormwater maintenance work. These programs seek to decrease localized flooding, improve water quality, and reduce stormwater maintenance costs. Adopt-A-Catch Basin programs leverage volunteers to regularly inspect storm drains, remove leaves or debris, and report damaged or clogged drains. In some cases, volunteers may even be asked to check on storm drains before a major storm. These simple actions help communities maximize their maintenance resources, prolong the life of stormwater and roadway infrastructure, and reduce the chance of localized flooding in neighborhoods. Adopt-A-Catch Basin is typically implemented by public works agencies or utilities that want to engage the community and maximize the capacity of operations staff.

The Adopt-A-Catch Basin solution delivers a set of capabilities that help local governments enlist community volunteers to keep catch basins clear of debris, manage program participants, and monitor the performance of the adoption program.
