Sweep Up! - Rake Up! - Pick Up!
Storm drains in Buffalo drain to storm ponds, ditches, and ultimately, lakes and rivers in Wright County. Buffalo's new Adopt a Drain program (developed by Hamline University) asks residents to Adopt-a-Drain in their neighborhood and commit to keeping it clear of leaves and other debris to reduce water pollution.
When you adopt a storm drain, you are preventing these harmful pollutants from entering our local water bodies. Sweeping up around your storm drain creates healthier habitats for all plants and animals that depend on these waterways.
