Orleans Officials Warn Residents Not To Clog Storm Sewer Grates

Last updated on Wednesday, April 18, 2012

(ORLEANS) - The Orleans Street Department is reminding local residents of the importance of not blowing grass clippings out into the town streets, roadways as prohibited by local ordinance.

This practice only tends to clog the already overtaxed and aging storm drains, further adding to the town's flooding problem during periods of heavy rainfall.

Town crews regularly check storm sewer grates, but property and business owners are also encouraged to assist in this endeavor by keeping grates clear of trash items, sticks, limbs in order to allow storm water to run off properly.
