Clean Drains Reduce Flooding

In the event of a storm, clogged drains can prevent the flow of water from the streets and into the storm sewer systems. The backup of water can cause localized flooding. With the help of residents, the chances of local flooding after a storm can be decreased. When performing routine yard maintenance don’t forget to add curb drains to the list. Clear them from debris, and place it into your landscape waste. This will help to keep the storm sewer system clear and move water where it is intended to go.
