Storm Drains and Flooding
City Street Department staff are clearing snow and ice from and opening Storm Sewer Drains and inlets throughout the City prioritized by low lying higher potential flood areas first.
As temperatures rise rapidly in the next few days, street flooding will occur as the street department will not be able to get to all of the thousands of storm drains presently covered with snow.
Please drive carefully and approach any flooded streets cautiously and turn around if water is more than a few inches deep.
If residents decide to uncover storm drains in their respective neighborhoods, please wear visible clothing and be cautious of street traffic as the high snowbanks limit visibility.
Thank you for your cooperation.
