Adopt a Drain Program

During these rainy spring days, the City of Naperville is again running its ‘Adopt a Drain’ program to help alleviate drain clogging around the city. The help of volunteers reduces the chances of flooding and water pollution and also can help save on drain maintenance costs. You can become a ‘Drain Defender’ by signing up on the city’s website and using their interactive map to select a drain or drains.
