FloodingHelp Prevent Flooding in your Neighborhood 

Drain & LeavesThe rainy fall weather is here and that means not only a lot of water going down our storm drains, but a lot of those autumn leaves as well. Leaves can quickly clog a drain and cause flooding in the street or sidewalk. You can help by adopting a drain in your neighborhood! During November, Seattle Public Utilities is having their "Fall Clean" event to support volunteers with free gloves, bags, brooms, rakes, and safety vests, as well as help with leaf disposal. You can sign up quickly for Fall Clean by filling out a form on the website, or calling 206.684.7624.
