The rain is here, don’t LEAF it to chance!

The City works to keep drains clear, but with close to 1,800 in town, we could use your help by making sure your storm drains are clear near your home.

Please do not remove the grates from the drains, as this creates a hazard and does not unclog the system. Instead, rake or blow leaves away from the drain (not into the street). 
NEVER try to clear a storm drain or culvert if there is moving water greater than knee deep, and always be wary of traffic when working near a roadway. 
Wet leaves are surprisingly heavy, so be careful not to overexert yourself. Debris from storm drains should be placed in yard waste containers. 

If flooding is severe, or you find evidence of dumping, please call 206-368-5440.
