Several neighbors have expressed concern about the condition and amount of debris on the streets now that the snow has melted. Here is the response from the City:
“As you may remember, we were snowed out of the last four days of the fall sweeping program. Consequently there are many neighborhoods and hundreds, even thousands, of storm drains across the City that have excess leaves and debris on the street and in the storm drains. We generally won’t be able to fully sweep streets until we commence the comprehensive spring sweep in April. Unless there are some locations that are so plugged that there is a risk of flooding and property damage, that is our most efficient way to deal with them. Sweeping without posting and enforcing the parking restrictions will just leave too much leaf and debris in the streets so that early rains would likely just reclog many storm drains.
Crews are generally aware of problem spots and might have a chance to clear some storm drains. If folks have some particularly bad, specific locations, they can report them through 311, and crews may get a chance to clear some storm drains prior to the sweep.
Please do report specific storm drains or streets and ask your neighbors to do the same!”
