MS4 Permit Adopt-a-Drain Program
Adopt-a-Drain is Kalispell’s newest volunteer stormwater involvement program. Created by the City with support from Flathead Basin Commission, the program sets up residents to help improve water quality and decrease localized flooding by being a steward of a storm drain. This program also helps Kalispell maintain compliance with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit administered by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.
The Adopt-a-Drain program provides residents with a way to help keep our local waterbodies clean by helping to reduce pollutants, including nutrients from yard or pet waste as well as trash, from getting into the stormwater system. Through the program, you can sign up to adopt a storm drain in your neighborhood.
Participating in the program is simple. Visit our website for more info on how to join and adopt a drain. You can even adopt more than one. Participants get a free toolkit with everything you need to clean your drain.
