Keep drainage features clear

Post Date:02/06/2019 9:00 AM

Obstruction of storm water drainage infrastructure can negatively impact your property, your neighbor’s property and public roadways.

Residents and corporate stakeholders in the community are encouraged to be vigilant in checking to make sure nearby infrastructure designed to manage water runoff is kept free and clear of debris. Water from storms could potentially lead to flooding if proactive steps aren’t taken to clear debris from drainage features.

If you see branches, leaves, construction materials or any other loose material blocking access to storm water infrastructure on or near your property, please take a moment to clear these obstructions.

Residents may submit a road maintenance Service Request online with questions or concerns about drainage swales, catch basins, storm drains, etc. Assistance is also available by calling 777-8765 during regular business hours.
