The Adopt a Storm Drain program gives residents the chance to give back to their community by caring for storm drains in their neighbourhood. This helps save properties from street flooding as well as protecting the environment by keeping debris from flowing into Wascana Creek.

The top 10 names were chosen from a total of 640 that were submitted between May 3 and May 30.

The top 10 names are:

  • Percival Stilwater
  • Treeaneu leaves
  • Swirley McCulvertson
  • Wayne’s Whirl
  • 13th man tear trough
  • Dippy Laney
  • Hydra Thunderwing Flash
  • Darth Grater
  • Tommy Plugless
  • Drain Nine and Three-Quarters

To vote, head to and choose your favourite. Voting will close on June 8 at 11:59 p.m.
