“Adopt a Drain” ~ Clear the drain before the rain ??
This is an opportunity for public outreach and participation to meet
requirements by (NPDES) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System..
Join other volunteers in our great city and adopt a drain
Leaves and trash in storm drains can clog the grates and lead to flooding.
A little volunteer effort goes a long way in helping
Public Works maintain the many storm drains throughout the city. This helps
reduce flooding and prevent pollution of our waterways.
Just find a drain or drains near your home or work and call Parker Public
Works at 850-871-4283 to sign up for adopt a drain. Keep a watchful eye for
signs of your drain needing special attention.
The city may loan debris bags, rakes, pickup sticks, safety vest and gloves for storm drain maintenance should you desire. After you have cleared the debris – once notified, we will schedule a pick-up.
(OR) You may call and
report the drain and a work order will be created.
Parker Public Works will keep monthly data reports
stating number of volunteers, locations, number of volunteer hours and amount
of debris removed.
By helping to keep storm drains clear, you decrease
flooding from storms, protect water quality and keep trash from storm drains
and connected water bodies.
The City of Parker appreciates your time and effort to
help keep storm drains free of debris
