There are 21,000 storm drain inlets in #Seattle that go directly to a local waterway, including the Puget Sound. You can prevent water pollution by adopting a storm drain. Sweep up around the drain a few times a month to clean up the debris & trash.https://t.co/f1CNF4xsgY pic.twitter.com/uXQnWbN0XX— Seattle Public Utilities (@SeattleSPU) April 25, 2022
