Prevent Flooding: Do Not Stack Debris on Storm Drains

 Image showing storm debris stacked on top of a storm drain. Do not do this. Debris can wash into the storm drain and clog it.

Never stack tree trimmings, yard debris or any kind of trash on top of a stormwater drain. These can wash into and clog the inlet, which could cause flooding on your street.

Grass clippings and debris are also harmful to the Indian River Lagoon.

Always remember to keep grass clippings and yard debris out of curbs, the roadway, and away from inlets/stormdrains.
