  • Rain and wind carry leaves and other pollutants into the storm drain.
  • Most of our storm drains empty directly into Minnehaha Creek or Lake Harriet; a few drain directly to the Mississippi River.
  • Leaves and grass clippings contain phosphorus.
  • Phosphorus is the main pollutant stimulating the growth of algae in the lakes and creek.
  • It is a violation of City ordinances to rake leaves into the street.
  • We are all part of the solution to preserving water quality.
