  • Prevent localized flooding
  • Keep our local waterways free of trash and debris
  • Reduce the possibility of pollutants entering our waterways

The City works to keep storm drains clear, but with close to 1,800 drains in Lake Forest Park, we could use your help. Storm drains are normally rectangular grates with slats typically located near the edge of the street. They collect water which then flows directly to the nearest stream or lake. The water that enters the storm drains is not treated.

Storm Drain Labeling
Across the Puget Sound, municipalities are working with residents to implement storm drain labeling activities. The program is simple: call the City, pick up your materials, and get to work labeling your storm drains. The goal is to foster awareness of the connection between what we do at home, what goes down the drain, and how our actions impact our water systems.

If you label 15 drains you get a prize, so don't wait another moment. Call today!

If you're interested in more than just labeling your storm drain you can pledge to keep an eye on it by participating in the Adopt-a-Drain program. When you Adopt-a-Drain, you agree to check a storm drain grate or grates near your home (particularly in the fall) and to remove any leaves or debris.
