Stormwater Quality Requirements
Please do not place leaves in the curb and gutter or street. Due to new storm water quality requirements necessitated by the Phase 2 Storm Water Quality Program mandated by the Federal Government, leaves can no longer be placed in the street. This will prevent contamination to storm water runoff which can pollute streams or the aquifer which supplies our drinking water.
Residents are advised to not place leaves in the street, as gutters and storm sewers can become blocked and cause localized flooding during moderate to heavy rainfall. Please help make the collection program run as smoothly as possible by raking your leaves between the curb and sidewalk, or in areas without curb, adjacent to the street.
Also, please do not park in front of or near the piles between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. as the trucks/equipment cannot reach them, those piles will be left until the next scheduled collection week. Do not place grass clippings, sticks, limbs or brush in with your leaves. These items can clog and damage our equipment and could injure workers.
Due to the large volume of leaves, crews may run a little bit behind schedule from time to time, but please have leaves raked to the curbside by the posted dates. Additional information will be provided with residents utility bills, on channel 18.
