Drainage Issues

Maintain your Drain

Is there is a storm drain near your property? If so, you may help by keeping it clear from debris.

Most situations we can minimize by keeping Storm drain grates clear from the following:

  • Trash
  • Leaves
  • Mulch
  • Grass clippings
  • Other debris

To minimize clogged drains you may help by maintaining drain-choking debris. 

It's especially important to Maintain your Drain before the rain starts falling.

For safety reasons it's not best to clear your drain while it's raining or if the storm water runoff along the street is running fast.

Maintain your drain to reduce street flooding
Streets are part of your drainange system. Gutters along our streets and drains at the curb are designed to help get excess water run off our roadways as quickly as possible.

If the storm drain grate is clogged with debris, the excess water backs up onto the street.

Maintain your drain to keep our creeks clean
Storm drains empty directly into creeks. so the trash, leaves, grass and other debris that does go down the storm drian winds up in our creeks and lakes. That can hurt our aquatic life.
