Adopt-a-Drain  is an initiative of the City to encourage residents to clear out blocked storm  drains by adopting one or more of San Francisco's 25,000+ storm drains (also called catch basins). By pledging to keep your drain free of leaves and debris, you are joining your neighbors in helping to protect the environment, manage stormwater, and minimize flooding.

How to Care For Your Adopted Drain
  • If possible, clear the drain before it starts raining.
  • Put leaves and other natural material in the green compost bin. Put trash in the black garbage bin.
  • Clear about 10 feet on both sides of the drain.
  • Medical waste or needles? Construction debris? Toxic materials? Report it to the City's Customer Service Center, 311 on the web (or dial 3-1-1).
Drain Cleaning Safety Tips
  • Never try to lift the drain grate.
  • Clear from the sidewalk, not the street.
  • Wear reflective clothing so vehicles can see you.
  • Always wear gloves and be careful of sharp objects!
  • Use a rake, broom, or shovel - not your hands.
Remember, the City and County of San Francisco won't be held responsible for anything that happens to you or others in service of maintaining your drain. Please be careful!

Free Tools and Training
We invite drain adopters to periodic events during the rainy season where they can receive drain cleaning trainings and free tools and supplies. Please keep an eye on your email for notification of these events. You will also receive email reminders from the SFPUC to clear your drains when rain is expected.

Try It and Spread the Word!
Excited about the Adopt-a-Drain program? Want to encourage your coworkers, friends and neighbors to participate? Utilize social media to spread the word.

The AAD website allows users to "adopt" a storm drain, or state that you intend to help clear that storm drain out if it gets blocked by debris. You can learn more and sign up at
