Flooding Maintenance Mid June

June 15, 2015

How often has your street been cleaned, swept, vacuumed ? A bit of yearly maintenance helps alleviate flooding. All that debris ends up in the stormdrains and they need to be cleaned out from time to time as well. When a street gets “cold patched” many pebbles ends up in the catchbasins via the steel grates by the curb.

Budgets are tight, and people should help out a bit. It takes a few minutes to sweep in front of your house when you mow the lawn , wack the weeds and do some edging by the sidewalk. Everyone benefits , it is a win-win.
