This program is a partnership between the City and its residents to care for our storm drains by keeping the opening to the drains free from leaves and other debris. We'd love your help to prevent localized flooding and improve water quality in Mountlake Terrace.
If you decide to adopt a drain (or multiple!) nearby, you agree to remove accumulated debris from your storm drain from October through March. Once a quarter, the Stormwater Program Manager will email you to track your volunteer time.
If you see a pollutant spill or street flooding, please contact the Operations and Maintenance crew at (425) 670-8264.
This link will take you to an interactive map of the Mountlake Terrace drains. Adopted drains are green stars and available drains are purple circles.
Click on each available drain you would like to adopt and fill out the pop-up form on the right side of the screen. Please keep note of the names of the drains so you can fill out and return your waiver form. The drain names are a series of letters and numbers, for example MA-01-01. Your information will not be publicly available. The information of your adopted drains will include the drain name and whether or not it is adopted.
Once we receive the waiver form, please feel free to start taking care of your drain(s)!
