Help Prevent Local Flooding, Clear Storm Drains/Catch Basins

As snow piles melt, you can help prevent localized street flooding by finding and clearing snow from drains and catch basins adjacent to your property. The City has created an interactive storm drain/catch basin location map to guide you in your efforts. Locations are approximate. All  locations are identified on map, but some may be covered basins as data available did not identify only grated/uncovered drains/basins. Thank you for your help.
