With the near record rain we had this past July, we would like to remind everyone of some basic stormwater flooding and pollution prevention ideas.
1. Never dump anything down the storm drains other than clean water. Homeowners should be aware of any illicit connections or discharges they may have to the storm drain system. Any pollutants that enter the storm drains will be washed into nearby wells, storm drains, stream, lakes, and rivers. Furthermore, trash, grass clippings and other debris can clog the system creating potential flooding problems.
2. Do not pile leaves, grass clippings and brush near a stream or river. Rising waters can pick it up and bring it downstream where if may clog culverts under the road creating a flooding problem.
3. Take your car to the car wash, where wash water is filtered and recycled, instead of washing it in the driveway. If you must wash at home, wash your car on a grass or gravel surface and use a small amount of soap.
4. Check and/or repair fluid leaks in your vehicles and recycle motor oil and other automotive fluids.
5. Dispose of paint and items from other household improvement projects appropriately.
FALL: Week of September 20–24.

Brush Pick-Up is for residential homeowners only, not for commercial properties, apartment or condominium complexes, land clearing and whole tree removals. If brush is not removed, an explanation of why will be left on a door knocker at entrance of home.
