Storm Sewer Cleaning

The Street Department cleans all catch basins in the city once a year. This helps our storm sewer system run at full capacity in the event of a heavy or prolonged rain event. Cleaning these catch basins on a regular basis also keeps contaminants from entering our water ways. Residents are reminded not to dump foreign matter into the catch basins as doing so will plug the catch basin and cause street flooding in rain events.
