Storm Season Preparation
Trees provide shade and comfort in the summer but during the first few heavy rains of the season they shed their leaves. Unless removed, these leaves make their way to our drainage system. They block catch basin grates and cross culvert pipes, including culverts going under driveways.
You can help by removing the leaves that are falling from the trees on your property, and disposing of them in a proper manner. Clear the tops of grates and in front of culvert pipes. With your help we can prevent flooding and help the environment. Please see the Drainage Maintenance Brochure for more information on how to prepare.
