Spring is here!

Temperatures are expected to be in the 40s and 50s this week. That means all the snow we've been getting will finally be melting! Have you been noticing the storm drains emerging from the receding snow banks? We have. The warm weekend temperatures resulted in trickling water. The snowmelt is also uncovering all the litter and debris that accumulated over the winter. Along the newly exposed storm drains are a lot of sand, cigarette butts, plant debris, and much more.

Have you considered a Spring Sweep around your home? The City does this, sweeping up streets to collect sand. Remember the storm drains DOES NOT get treated before entering a nearby stream. You can help prevent all the accumulated litter from entering our waters by doing a spring sweep of your own.
