Thank you for your interest in joining Burlington's Adopt-A-Drain program and becoming one of our highly praised "Drain Defenders". 

Water Resources is currently working on migrating the Adopt-A-Drain website to a more stable platform than the one previously used. We encourage current Drain Defenders (acknowledged Volunteer Guidelines, Waiver & Release of Liability), to continue to monitor their respective drains, assist DPW by ensuring that the grates remains open and clear, and alert us via SeeClickFix if there are specific concerns related to catch basins, drainage or flooding.

For those looking to sign up, please email stormwater@burlingtonvt.gov with your name and contact info. We will reply back when the new website is up and running.
