Fewer than 10% of known storm drains have been adopted in the five communities surrounding White Bear Lake. To change that statistic, the White Bear Lake Conservation District is issuing a new challenge. 

Why adopt a drain? Stormwater flows directly into local lakes, rivers and wetlands, acting as a conduit for trash, salt and pollutants. The Adopt-A-Drain program gives residents the opportunity to improve water quality by adopting a storm drain in their neighborhood and keep it clear of leaves, trash and other debris. The result is less water pollution.
