CLEVELAND — Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of or watched the Netflix hit "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" in which she helps regular people declutter their homes. But have you ever thought about the outside of your home? The Cuyahoga Soil & Water Consveration District wants you to take her advice to the streets, literally.

The district encourages everyone to clean their storm drain the way Marie Kondo would do it by clearing away any litter, dog waste, sediment and other not so fun material away from the storm drains.

Periodic checks of storm drains can help keep pollutants from entering creeks, streams and rivers.

So, do your part and help with stormwater pollution runoff.
