Waterways can accumulate trash due to rain washing and people dumping debris into the storm drainage system. The Town’s Adopt-A-Stream program can be a helpful tool to assist the Town in keeping our waterways clean. It is a volunteer-based program that allows our citizens to be involved in the community while providing valuable information to Town staff about stream conditions. It can be a great opportunity for HOAs, businesses, churches, sports associations, or scout groups to perform a social or team-building activity.
To participate in the Adopt-A-Stream program, volunteers are required to clean up a stream segment once a year for two years. We will supply all the materials you need and collect the trash you pick up. Once a group fulfills this requirement, the group qualifies to have its name on an Adopt-A-Stream road sign!
Of course, a citizen or group of citizens can also choose to hold one or more cleanups at a stream without the commitment of an Adopt-A-Stream contract. Town staff can help you coordinate this event and provide you with supplies.
