Too excited to wait until next year?

You can do your part to help keep the Grand River clean by picking up trash where you live, work and play before it gets into the storm drain (or basin). When it rains it can take as little as 15 minutes for the debris and waste around storm drains to make it into the Grand River.

It only takes a little time to clear debris and waste from the storm basins in your neighborhood, but it makes a big difference when it comes to protecting the health of our community. WMEAC encourages you to extend the Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup into your neighborhood by picking up trash from around storm drains and keeping it out of the river! Gather your family, friends and neighbors and work together to keep your neighborhood and the river clean and healthy!

Check out the “15 to the River” video for more information!

Want to do even more? The Lower Grand River Organization of Watersheds has an Adopt-a-Drain program, where you can adopt a storm basin (or drain) throughout the year. You even get to name it!
