Let's start with an autumn reminder.
As the leaves begin to fall off the trees and onto your lawns, remember that is is a no-no to sweep them into the roadside ditches where they can block the water flow through culverts, and also onto the streets where they can cause slippery conditions and block storm drain grates. If you have culverts and grates near your house, you can help ease potential flooding threats by keeping these drains clear with a rake or broom. It just takes a second, and can save many dollars worth of flood damage. Our crews do their very best, but there are thousands of storm drains and culverts in the county, and it only takes a few maple leaves to block the top of a storm drain. So, on that note:
In the NPDES areas: Sweeping and catch-basin and culvert cleaning. There could be single lane work zones, so please use caution when in these areas.
