Prevent Flooding – Never Stack Trash & Debris Near Storm Drains

Post Date:08/29/2019 4:20 PM

Hurricane Dorian could bring heavy rainfall to our area.

To prevent flooding, residents should make sure storm drains are free of debris so water can drain freely. 

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

Bring trash cans, yard décor, toys, sports equipment, and lawn furniture inside.
