What You Can Do to Help Our Drainage System Work Properly
We need residents and business owners to proactively address drainage issues in the City. That means keeping an eye out for potential problems in your neighborhood. Please consider the following issues:
- clean all debris around drains, catch basins and drop inlets to ensure storm water can enter the drainage system
- do not park over storm drains during a rain event
- prevent chemicals, fertilizers and other effluent from entering the drainage system
