November is Fall Clean
Adopt a Drain and Help Prevent Flooding

SEATTLE — Don’t let fall rainstorms flood your street. Participate in Seattle Public Utilities’ Fall Clean by helping clear your local storm drain of leaves and other debris.

This autumn Seattle Public Utilities will face a big job keeping storm drains clear. As a way to involve citizens and keep the water flowing, the utility is supporting volunteers with free gloves, bags, brooms, rakes, and safety vests, as well as help with leaf disposal.
All you need to do is sign up or call (206) 233-7187.

Supplies can be picked up at SPU’s warehouse at 3633 East Marginal Way South
(East Marginal Way South and South Spokane Street) on these dates and times:

  • Saturday, October 20, 9:00 a.m. to noon
  • Saturday, October 27, 9:00 a.m. to noon
