Become a gate keeper of our waterways by registering for the Village’s new Grate Keepers Program. Residents and businesses can now adopt the storm water inlets near their property and pledge to clean the areas around them to reduce local flooding and keep litter and yard waste from polluting local waterways and impeding proper flow.
Using the Villages GIS mapping program, residents can search their neighborhood to find nearby grates. Click here to find inlets (I) and catch basins (CB) available. Be sure to copy or write down the identification number of the inlet or catch basin you want to adopt. When you are ready, fill out this on-line form to register and name your grate and show your commitment to reduce trash and organic pollutants while preventing localized flooding.
