Adopt-a-Drain (AAD) is an initiative of the City of Virginia Beach. Storm drains in Virginia Beach neighborhoods drain to local waterways. AAD allows users to “adopt” storm drains in their neighborhood and commit to keeping them clear of leaves and other debris to reduce flooding and water pollution.

When you adopt a storm drain through the City of Virginia Beach Adopt-a-Drain program, you are volunteering to keep your storm drain clear from debris, such as grass clippings, leaves, pine needles, sediment, and trash. By taking care of your adopted storm drain, you’re helping to keep our local waterways clean and healthy.
Your well-being and enjoyment are important to the City. All volunteers are expected to conduct themselves in a safe, courteous and legal manner while participating in activities on City property or right-of-way. All volunteers must please observe the following guidelines when volunteering to keep drains clear of debris.
