Individuals, organizations or businesses may participate in the program. Participation involves agreeing to remove litter and other debris from a designated stream reach on a regular interval.
In exchange, a sign bearing the name of the organization will be installed at the designated cleanup area. The City will bear the cost of producing, installing and maintaining the sign. The City will also provide program participants materials to help with the cleanup.
Selected City maintained streams are eligible for adoption. Eligible sections will be determined by the City. Those stream sections determined unsafe will not be eligible for adoption. Selected privately owned streams may also be eligible for adoption providing the property owner gives written consent allowing access to their property and is one of the signatories of the Adopt-a-Stream agreement.
Interested citizens should contact the City’s MS4 Program Coordinator for more information at (540) 332-3858 or StauntonStormwater@ci.staunton.va.us.
