Don't blow your leaves into the street. Please collect them and put them in your compost container for disposal.
How we prepare
Throughout the year, crews perform repairs, pipe inspections and cleanings, catch basin inspections and cleanings, pond and stream maintenance, and street sweeping to maintain and operate our stormwater drainage system. Check out the Street Sweep Zone Map.
The City's public system consists of:
138 miles of pipes
8,232 catch basins
396 detention/ retention facilities that include ponds, underground vaults, pervious pavement, and other water quality features
When the leaves start to fall, crews operate street sweepers seven days a week to help remove leaves from 365 lane miles of streets. We also monitor the weather forecast to be ready for potential flooding from heavy rain.
