Maintain clean storm drains to avoid flooding
Storm drains are designed to channel excess precipitation, in the form of runoff, away from the road and into the stormwater system. Blocked storm drains cannot remove enough water from the roadway, causing localized flooding. Leaves and grass clippings in stormwater runoff can also increase nutrient loading, which negatively impacts water quality in lakes and streams. Pet waste, antifreeze and oil all have the potential to be discharged to waterbodies when it rains.
Citizens are asked to remember the slogan “Only rain down the storm drain” and follow these tips from Lake County and the St. Johns River Water Management District to help maintain clear storm drains.
