A storm drain with multi color leaves around it clogging it. Please keep the storm drain clear of debris.

The fall season is one of the most colorful and breathtaking season of the year. With all of these beautiful colors comes the leaves. One of the top causes of storm drain clogs is from natural debris, such as: branches, twigs, dirt, rocks and, of course, leaves. Also, sadly, there are other type of debris that clog our storm drains with our winds and due to living in the city, such as: plastic bags, plastic bottles, food, cardboard containers, aluminum cans, and fast-food containers.

Here are a few things that you can do to prevent clogged storm drains:

  1. Regularly monitor neighborhood storm drains for debris.
  2. Do not blow or sweep leaves into the ditches, storm drains, or roads.
  3. If a drain is clogged use a shovel or rake to remove the debris.
  4. Remember to always wear reflective clothing and gloves for safety.
  5. Makes sure to only clean the drains you can reach, avoid busy areas.
  6. If the drain is still clogged, please report is to: https://www.cheyennecity.org/Your-Government/Departments/Public-Works or call 307-637-6263.
