Localized street flooding

As we can all see, rain on snow and rapidly melting snow increases the possibility of flooding when storm drains are covered with snow, ice or slush. If the water cannot get into the storm drain, it can result in localized street flooding.  The majority of our storm water system relies on infiltrating water to the ground.  When we have large rain and snow melt events, the ground becomes saturated, and infiltration rates will temporarily diminish. 

Please know that City staff is actively working on these issues, but as you know, while we have a very dedicated staff, we also have a small staff.  The good news is that there are things you can do to protect yourselves and your property.

This is very important. Everyone needs to play a part. Residents who feel safe doing so can help keep storm drain covers open by using a shovel or rake. You may need to do this more than once.  Keep an eye on your neighborhood storm drains.  If it is safe to do so, continue to clear snow, ice and slush that may otherwise block your storm drain inlet to help prevent localized flooding.
