Prepare San Leandro 

San Leandro has approximately 2,200 storm drain inlets that can become clogged with litter and leaf debris throughout the year.  This can lead to localized flooding during the rainy season, and also contamination of San Leandro Creek and the San Francisco Bay. San Leandro residents and businesses can help the City and their neighborhoods prepare for rainstorms by adopting one or more drains near their home or business. It doesn't take much to keep a storm drain clear. A monthly commitment to check the drain and remove the debris on top goes a long way in helping Public Works maintain the drains to reduce flooding and prevent pollution of our waterways.

To adopt a drain, identify an available drain from the map below, and use the Drain ID from the map to complete the registration form. For additional information including the benefits of adoption and the terms of participation, view the Prepare San Leandro video and visit the Volunteer Resources page.
