Prevent Flooding: Adopt Your Drain
Don’t let fall rainstorms flood your street. Help clear your local storm drain of leaves and other debris by adopting your local storm drain.
Every autumn Bellevue Utilities faces a big job keeping storm drains clear – there are over 20,000 of them around the city!
Remember to clear your drain only if it is safe. Stay out of the street and work from a sidewalk if possible. Put all leaves and compostable debris in your organics cart. Don’t put grass clippings, leaves, or other debris into drains, ditches, creeks, culverts, gutters or ravines.
If a storm drain appears blocked below the street surface, call 425-452-7840.
