Brooms to Basins


Clearing catch basins helps keep them free of litter, grass clippings, leaves, and other debris. Clean catch basins are important as they allow water to flow freely, reducing flooding in your yard and street and reduce pollution in our waterways protecting our wildlife and fisheries.


Did you know that Jefferson Parish has over 83,000 catch basins? The parish is committed to cleaning catch basins as part of regularly scheduled maintenance, however by adopting a catch basin close to your home or business, you will help maintain your basin’s full capacity between parish cleanings.


Make a difference in your neighborhood by adopting your catch basin and let us see you put those brooms to your basins by uploading photos on social media using #BroomstoBasins.

We are currently revamping the adoption process. Please check back at a later time.
