Keep Storm Sewer Inlets Clear to Prevent Flooding

Storm Inlet

With summer storms coming and going, it is very important to make sure the storm sewer inlets on your street or in front of your house are clear of leaves and other debris. 

Clogged inlets can prevent stormwater from entering the sewer and may contribute to flooding in the street. 

For more information on flood management, visit the Village's website
