Be safe

If you see "Street Closed" signs or barricades on the road, do NOT drive, bike or walk around or through them. They are there for your safety. If water is covering a road and it looks unsafe (even if no signs are up), use alternative routes.

Help prevent flooding by keeping storm drains clear

During fall and winter weather, storm drains need your help to function as they’re supposed to. Leaving them covered with leaves, snow, ice, and other debris means there’s no place for rain and melting snow to go, so it could pool up or cause flooding.

  • Do not block storm drains with snow shoveled from your driveway.
  • If a storm drain is blocked, use a shovel to clear the top of the grate, and break up and remove any built-up ice if it’s safe to do so.
  • NEVER remove a storm drain lid or attempt to clean a drain located in a busy street.
  • Do not wade into the water when you are unsure of the depth.
