Wind & Leaves = Clogged Storm Drains

Leaves are very colorful in the fall, and our street-tree friendly City certainly has an abundance. However, leaves can create problems by clogging storm drains and flooding the street.

What can you do? Residents with street trees should keep leaves raked, and homeowners that have a storm drain grate in front of their property are encouraged to keep leaves and other debris cleared away from the drain. Most importantly, don’t rake or blow leaves into the street; we do not have a leaf collection program.
